MP3: "Is This Thing On?" by Reversing Falls

Formed in Montreal during 2007 by Tyler Crawford (vocals, guitar) and Jesse Ash (bass), Reversing Falls took it’s current shape after enlisting guitarist Charlie Neufeld and the steady tick of an Akai MPC 1000. Their 2010 Recoder EP was recorded by the band and Martin Horn (Parlovr, Cotton Mouth) and mixed by Mark Lawson. Recoder showcases their ability to deliver precision crafted, filler free guitar pop and has garnered comparisons to Pavement, Guided by Voices, Big Black or a more abrasive Sloan.

In early 2011, the band reunited with Lawson for the single Little Goodbye / Doom Beach. LGB / DBRecoder and pushes it into the red: gleaming acoustic guitars, laser beam riffs and a manic croon backed by churning bass and a drum machine blast. These clusters of "controlled chaos" are a preview of the band’s upcoming debut LP.
