HSOB060: Watererer - To Finding Out

by Watererer

Man In Cave 01:19

I Know Why 04:41


"Watererer show that innovation in rock music is very much alive if you know where to look.To Finding Out is an impressive and refreshing record, and it’s an important reminder of the value a new perspective can provide." - Double Negative

"The music on To Finding Out is a heap of curlicue guitar, clattering percussion, free jazz blowin’, and dazed lyrical snippets. 'Toweringly Ambitious Array' one of the more unique rock-adjacent songs I’ve heard this year." - Bored In Pittsburgh

Watererer's debut album began as a sound test for the newly built Woolslayer Traveling Studio, which now no longer travels. David Bernabo (also of Host Skull and How Things Are Made) was writing two types of music--a series of written-and-recorded-on-the-spot double tracked acoustic songs and elaborate eight and nine and ten-piece orchestrations. In August 2019, percussionist PJ Roduta stopped by the studio and four hours later, knocked out all the drums for the record. The rest of this studio band--a really creative, super talented, and dedicated group of musicians--recorded their tracks and Watererer was born. This record is the product of a space and the people involved in its creation.
