Milk Go Country Rock on 'Mattress Ranch' LP, Premiere "Melty" Video
The debut album is available to stream now
Published Nov 26, 2018Vancouver indie rock combo Milk released their Late Bloomer EP back in early 2016, and now their debut full-length is here. It's called Mattress Ranch, and it's available to stream in full now, as is a video for the single "Melty."
The 11-song album preserves the jangly slacker-pop sound of Late Bloomer while also taking Milk into a country-fried direction. Band member Al Smith played pedal steel on Mattress Ranch, and this adds a rootsy flavour to frontman Thomas James' nimble arpeggios and Akanée Rose's peppy drums.
Jay Arner recorded, mixed and mastered the album. Adrienne Labelle (Supermoon) contributed violin, Jessica Delisle (Energy Slime) played clarinet, and Dylan Ferguson handled trumpet.
