Formed in 2009, Cleveland slacker rock enthusiasts Filmstrip are about to release their latest LP via Exit Stencil Recordings. In the time since, the trio has shared the stage with a number of notable indie acts (The Men, Grass Widow, Cloud Nothings and Best Coast to name a few), and are currently on tour supporting their new LP Moments of Matter. “Stuck on Explode” is a slowcore jam off the band’s sophomore effort. Understated chords seep into bluesy, distorted guitars and chilled-out drum patterns keep the track’s pace in check. Dave Taha’s deadpan vocals recall those of Dave Bazan, but Filmstrip are more fittingly aligned with classic psych-rock than Pedro the Lion’s early 2000s emo.
Moments of Matter is out November 4th on Exit Stencil Recordings.
