|arbor 140 ryan garbes real sugar b/w the lights 7” ep|
ryan garbes is the drummer of iowa city bands such as wet hair, dunebuggy, trash dog, and formerly raccoo-oo-oon. his recordings under his own name represent a unique brand of solo multi-track recording with a seamless integrity; through a skillful use of instrumentation and recording technique, garbes eschews notions of low fidelity for songs reminiscent of traditional american garage rock produced in the haze of an early 90’s uk aesthetic. genuine pop songs, cloaked in a comforting wash of reverb, as if lou reed had done a record for creation; more ecstatic than obstructed garbes’ voice is a refreshing one outside the continuum of the contemporary four-track bedroom pop.
in an edition of 300 copies with full color sleeve and printed labels by ryan.
