SWEATERS are doing new and exciting stuff with rock’n’roll and your girlfriend, all in their beloved Los Angeles –their “City by the Sea”. The lineup in no particular order: French Max - known for his bass guitar and a wide array of homemade tank tops. Ladyface Harkins - sex-wax & sex-guitars. And who’s this? Jordan Benik - the voice & barrel-house keys. And of course there has to be a drummer, Joel Isaac Black - proper mod-trap kit, Texas moptop. This quartet grooves with bent sounds, thick harmonies, and crucially cool vibes in a city famous for its disastrous personalities. Harry Nilsson, Keith Moon, Papa John and Dennis Wilson might have said wonderful things about them. But we will never know. Eating the past while toasting to the future. Ladies and gentleman, L.A.’s own SWEATERS. With hope and a decent amount of luck, they are today’s last great pop band. Allowing the music to be born organically while thriving on their self-proclaimed philosophy Can’t Stop Winning SWEATERS gears up for their 7” release on WHITE IRIS RECORDS. Exuding creative duplicity, SWEATERS will accompany their musical genius with a 14-page manifesto explaining their Can’t Stop Winning attitude and theory. Based on the idea of ones inability to lose, Benik explains, “CSW Theory is about relying on instinct to make natural choices so that we may explore our own limitless conscious- ness.” Following their own philosophy after their May 2010 EP (Sky Mall/investigations) with Slow Death Records, SWEATERS will finally bring you another taste of that sweet nectar that is vocally inspiring and instrumentally powerful. In the true style of rock and roll you’ll be bouncing to the guitars riffs and singing along to the chorus of Can’t Stop Winning in no time. Exciting your eardrums with steel guitars, lurching vocals, topped with a seasoning of a 70s vibe that lives in the now, the pot is boiling over and burning off taste buds.
