Published Mar 22, 2012After years playing in the underground, Milwaukee indie mainstays Jaill made a name for themselves when they signed on with Sub Pop to release 2010's That's How We Burn, and the act keep the momentum going this spring when they issue their second full-length for the imprint, Traps.
Sub Pop drops the disc on June 12, and apparently it's an "acerbic exercise in both humility and aggression," according to the press release. Though said to boast some pop melodies, Traps may have some ominous lyrical overtones, with the label explaining how guitarist/vocalist Vinnie Kircher "portrays the malfunctioning universe inside a home, taking into account the myriad ways in which relationships and responsibilities can destroy a person's mind."
The band began tracking the album in Kircher's "crummy, poorly lit basement" in January of 2011, and spent the bulk of the year on the record. After wrapping sessions in October, they sent the tracks over to Brooklyn's Rare Book Room to be mastered by Nicolas Vernhes.
Neither a tracklisting nor sound samples have been unleashed just yet.
