Song of the Day #29: Scribbler – “No Curtains”

It’s been an awfully long time since we’ve heard from SCRIBBLER, the noisy, experimental folk-rock crew from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Well recently they sent over this track “No Curtains” which comes from a scene-defining compilation put out by the Khyber Centre for the Arts in Halifax. It’s a 27-track cassette and the second volume of the compilation, including some names like Dog Day and Each Other amongst a bunch of others.

As for Scribbler themselves, they seem to be keeping busy as of late, because this track “No Curtains” is a sort of precursor for where the band is headed with their upcoming debut LP, Abiogenesis. “No Curtains” is their first studio recording which shows a world of difference from their My Old Lady 7″ we covered way back when. It’s a dreary and folksy number, featuring a warming guitar twang and calming boy-girl vocal pairings. Within the final minute the track splits open at the seams, revealing a thick buzz that sits heavily atop crashing drums and shredded guitar chords. It’s as pummeling as it is surprising in a track that at first seemed less vigorous, which only leaves us curious what this new LP could have in store.

You can hear “No Curtains” right below, and then be sure to keep Scribbler on your radar. There doesn’t seem to be a release date for the album at the moment, but we’ll see what happens soon enough!
