Gustaf release debut single

2020-10-13 by robertsona STAFF | 4 Comments
The NYC band Gustaf, who make minimalist post-punk inspired by the likes of ESG and Jonathan Richman, have released their debut single, "Mine". Described as "A song about the overly entitled and underwhelmed," the song features many of the sonic and structural hallmarks that endeared Gustaf to local and national audiences (apparently including the musician Beck and critic Anthony Fantano) since their formation in early 2017: a brief lick from bassist Tine Hill that is repeated throughout the song; a humorous and spastic and arty lead vocal performance by Lydia Gammill; subtle pokes of Fela Kuti-inspired guitar from Vram Kherlopian. Check out the video for the single below, and keep an eye out for their debut album, purported to be titled Audio Drag for Ego Slobs, in 2021:

Is this the one you were mentioning is a step down from some of their other live cuts?

^Having heard some of those live cuts (thanks robertsona), I think I'd agree with that. Still a good song though.
