RIYL: Dehd, Spirit of the Beehive, No Age

Label: Fat Possum

Two years after their genre-defying 2019 debut Active Listening: Night on Earth, Philly experipop 4-piece Empath have prepared and primed their anticipated sophomore full-length Visitor, 11 tracks that will resist any and all cliches, spit in the face of predictability and give mediocrity a purple nurple. From noise rock to lofi punk & roll to pillowy soft ambience, Empath weave a remarkably wide array of influences into a majestic cacophony of textures and sounds. Catherine Elicson’s vocals are sometimes shoved to the very front of a track while others drown her in keyboards, guitar reverb and Garrett Koloski’s sensational drumming chaos.

Fans of other Sonic Youth disciples like Spirit of the Beehive and No Age will find Empath the perfect companions for your growing “Undefined” section of your record collection. Check out 2 new songs from the record below and grab a slab of bone-colored vinyl from Fat Possum Records after the ‘buy’ link.
