Album Of The Week
“There are no happy endings/ There are only things that happen.” If you’re looking for an encapsulation of Water From Your Eyes’ whole burnt-out ethos, look no further than “Buy My Product,” the insistent closing track from Everyone’s Crushed, the duo’s fifth overall album but first for Matador Records. After years in the trenches, Nate Amos and Rachel Brown’s winking, sardonic recording project has landed at an institutionalized label.
Style-hopping indie duo find focus in chaos
Across seven years and several albums this band has been evolving its scattershot sonic collage, and here it feels like they’ve finally found their sound
The Brooklyn duo's logic-defying new album threads anticapitalist critique, stoner humor, and a hazy undercurrent of fatalism into art-pop so mesmerizing it'll give you a contact high.
Water From Your Eyes are one of the most interesting acts in music these days and no doubt a coup for Matador to get them in their grasp. If creating the music on Everyone’s Crushed was as fun as it is to consume, it’s a wonder that Brown and Amos take time to eat or bowl a few frames. To paraphrase from an earlier legend, “Keep it comin’ loves!” Ultimately, Everyone’s Crushed is the summer soundtrack for those that hate summery soundtracks. People like you.
