about

Rrest is the first vinyl release for Olympia, Washington-based L.A. Lungs. Known for creating deeply personal connections with their audiences, the married duo, Afterthought Lung and Leeward Lung, are longtime mainstays of the capital city’s storied underground scene, as well as an integral part of the Debacle Records story. With two previous CDs in our back catalog, amid several releases from other NW labels, the pair have won the hearts of those in the local underground scene since 2005, particularly through their involvement with Debacle Fest and Olympia Experimental Music Festival. Debacle Records is excited to share the best kept secret of the Northwest with the larger world; it’s time for L.A. Lungs to step into the light.

L.A.Lungs have the ability to, in a single track, evoke both a dusky summer evening and the white, white light of a winter morning. Employing an army of instruments such as guitar, violin, Roland Juno 60, plus toys and noisemakers, L.A. Lungs are able to move from disquieting cryptic sound fields to warm embracing drones. Their songs would be home next to those of Motion Sickness of Time Travel, Mountains, and Lau Nau.

Rrest is the most faithful representation of the L.A. Lungs we know from stage. Hushed conversation at one in the morning, shaking pine needles, condensation on glass, creaking floorboards, sunning cats, puddles filling from heavy drops--Rrest feels like all of these things yet without the aid of field recordings. Empty spaces hold on to your attention. Clicks and strums brush up against you and retreat. Tones that had once felt disconnected and stark, sneak and braid into crescendos of dreamy urgency.
