Lewsberg - "Terrible"

Photo by Tommy Ventevogel
Rotterdam's Lewsberg are set to re-release their debut album, and since we've never heard it before, we can pretend it's brand new. One of the lead singles, "Terrible," would be called a slacker anthem if it was released 25 years ago. It has this incredibly laid back vibe despite having a quiet intensity. It just chugs along at it's own set pace, meandering slightly but not much. It reminds me a lot of Pavement meets DEVO. That would be until the guitar solo kicks in. The late guitar solo has the crazed energy/laid back feel of a J Mascis solo. Plus, with a opening line like "“I’m about to do something terrible, I’m about to do something nice," how more early 90's slacker can you possibly get?

You can watch the video for "Terrible" below. Lewsberg's self-titled debut album will be out February 1 on Cargo Records Distribution. For more on Lewsberg, be sure to check out their website.
