Erase Errata | Lost Weekend (Under the Sun)

lost weekend_75Immediately reminiscent of Joy Division and other post-punk legends, this all-girl group brings an urgent edge back to today’s post-punk scene.

 

 

Fluid beats meet and pop, spinning, cycling, and rounding together a daytime scheme of beatnik kids in a popular coffee shop. The dance-worthy rhythm is laced with out of control noise, art, and color. Repetitive lines weave through verses, all dancing—always dancing. This is Erase Errata’s Lost Weekend, the relieved album after a nine year hiatus.

If you’re in the need for a good dancefloor accompaniment, Lost Weekend should be the first album you pick up. Immediately reminiscent of Joy Division and other post-punk legends, this all-girl group brings an urgent edge back to today’s post-punk scene.

“In Death, I Suffer” gives a chilling, space-scape ambiance. Improvised and chaotic, this song truly captures the wild color expanse that the album is painted in. But don’t let the mellow demeanor get you down. After a few passes, the tune’s mysterious veil lifts, and its darkness spreads even deeper and quicker.

Other mentionable songs are “Watch Your Language” and “History of Handclaps”. Both songs take you into the album’s trip. Lost Weekend truly embodies what noise and dance punk are trying to achieve today. Slightly understandable verses mixed with a need-to-repeat, this song will also create a sort of twitch in your bones.

Erase Errata’s comeback album truly inspires not only other all-girl punk groups, but truly any punk bands trying to make it into the scene. Their art is about enjoying the flow of the music as it enters your spirit, playing songs with people you love, and letting go.

Lost Weekend was released on January 20th via Under the Sun Records. If you find yourself falling in love with Erase Errata, you can also read how the gears and cogs spin for Lost Weekend from an interview of the band’s singer, Jenny Hoyston. Don’t let this noise fade, and download the album now. A | Vella Mour
