RIYL: Smith Westerns, Whitney, Real Estate
Label: Romanus Records
For the better part of a decade, Indianapolis indie rock powerhouse S.M. Wolf have been dissecting, injecting and perfecting their own singular blend of psych pop cuts and sparkling garage hooks. Precious Downtime is their 5th full-length and first endeavor with fellow Indiana natives Romanus Records.
Led by Adam Gross, S.M. Wolf has shapeshifted and evolved a lineup of players stacked with studio expertise and, most importantly, immaculate taste. Divided during the pandemic, the recording process for Precious Downtime demanded a willingness to explore and experiment, yet the record is their most cohesive to date. Fans of The Velvets’ Loaded era, The Smith Westerns and all of your favorite psych-tinged indie rock will love this one.
The record goes on sale Saturday, September 4th, at 3:00 PM EST. There will be a sand-filled variant limited to only 50 copies, a tri-color edition also limited to 50 and a splatter colorway limited to 150. The rare stuff is gonna go quick, so don’t dilly dally.
