"an unsettlingly sultry, Moog-lubed track that oozes and writhes like some prog-disco wet dream"
Dead Rider, the Chicago-based project of axe hero Todd Rittmann, infamous for his days in the equally heroic U.S. Maple, release Chills On Glass, their third album and first for Drag City, on March 18th. Super-heavy, super-driving, self-recorded, produced and mastered, Chills On Glass is an excitedly confounding album experience. Dead Rider leave no stylistic stone unturned in their restless path and no knob on the board untwisted in their search for the mixe parfait. Scribble, confetti and other sonic details provide an exquisite dressing for thick and thrashing rhythms and expertly maneuvered tight corners as smooth and sandy vocal textures rub together and ignite. Rhythm is king in Dead Rider, but melodies, changes and production carry the crest.
For further insight into what drives Dead Rider, check out the twisted visual representation of "Blank Screen," expertly configured by Slipbeat, and then catch the Dead Rider live band -- Matthew Espy (drums, conga, percussion), Andrea Faught (synth, piano, trumpet, trombone, vocals), Thymme Jones (synth, trumpet, vocals) and Rittmann (vocals, guitar, drums) -- slay across the Midwest and northeast this spring.
