Track of the Day: Each Other - "Certain Happenings"
Rob Peoni Friday, February 21, 2014
I recently became acquainted with Montreal three-piece Each Other through a stellar cassette compilation entitled Scrapings. The comp was a collaborative release from Prison Art and French imprint Carpi Records. It features unreleased material from artists on the labels rosters. Each Other's contribution, "Certain Happenings," kicks off the compilation with a shimmering synth line and hazy, burnt out vocals before collapsing on itself and subsequently spreading its legs at the 1:37 mark.
"Certain Happenings" was from a batch of material Each Other recorded while prepping their debut full-length Being Elastic, due to drop on March 4 via Lefse Records and Fat Possum. However, Prison Art handled the band's debut cassette so they offered up this bonus track for the comp. Those interested may name your price for a digital download of Each Other's previous work via Bandcamp. If "Certain Happenings" wasn't strong enough to make the cut on Being Elastic, all signs point toward this release as one to keep your ears on.
