Maybe its the Nagel portrait in the background of this artists face shot, or the ode to classic rock n roll standards that make this act stand out personally. The chill yet noisy ambiance brought on through lo-fi production create a catchy droned pop aesthetic. Raw Thrills is out of New York, with albums released from Olde English Spelling Bee Records. Zak Mering is the man behind this dreamy nostalgic machine, with a slew of synth goodies, and raw tendencies outside of the typical hipster realm of expectation.
Zak Mering from Greatest Hits and The Sweethearts has a new solo LP, Shakedown, out early 2011 on Japanese label Sixteen Tambourine under his Raw Thrills moniker. Been on Raw Thrills since January and heard a couple more jams on his Myspace in October. (friendship bracelet)
