Raw McCartney – Introducing CS

raw mccartney cs ep 2013 introducing tripp tapes

Born out of Indianapolis, RAW MCCARTNEY dropped their Introducing CS on Tripp Tapes in 2013. The tape offers a unique blend of fuzzy punk, psych, noise and space rock, following up their sloppy debut from 2012 that was recorded on a cell phone.

After hearing just how harsh their debut is, this new tape is such a welcomed change of pace. There’s even better news as the band has an upcoming 7″ with Indianapolis-based label GloryHole Records, which will hopefully lead to a full-on tour down the line. As long as there’s some form of this fuzzy space rock in our future, then everything will be a-okay.

Introducing opens with a dense warble in “Son of Sham,” setting us up on one fuzzy, time-warped journey. Fizzy guitars and pulsating bass lines lead the way, spearheaded by frontman Jacob Gardner’s raspy vocals. It’s a near 6-minute introduction, but it quickly shows off what this cassette is all about – noisy, hypnotizing space rock that is heavy on fuzz and repetition. “Born to Ride” is a frizzy graveyard burner, led by a menacing guitar buzz and a marching snare drum. There’s some sharp, melodic guitars buried in the sandpaper-like complexion, which continuously gains intensity as the track unfolds. The progression in “All is Lines” is fun and mesmerizing, sealing up a wobbly affair as if you’re staring at a mirage in the haze of the desert. The track is driven by a propulsive bass line, decorated by waves of sweeping guitars that add a dose of lysergic color.

Be sure to listen to these highlights from the tape below, then sit tight for their upcoming tour and 7″!
