El Paso, Texas’ Lesser Care share their forthcoming debut, Underneath, Beside Me. With production assistance from Chris Common (Minus The Bear, Pelican, etc.) the full-length sees the light of day via à La Carte Records on April 1, 2022.
“Underneath, Beside Me is our nine-track full-length debut. We wrote it in the winter of 2020 and the beginning of 2021. The album’s notion is made entirely out of prospects dealing with grief, loss, love, and the aching acceptance of it all. We consider these songs as personal introductions to new ends, and old beginnings,” says Angel Yglecias.
Although they’ve only been in existence a short time, El Paso, Texas post-punk, shoegaze trio Lesser Care released a four-song EP, titled True Burden in the winter of 2020, singles “Palm/Acquired Taste” back in the spring of 2021, and several weeks of U.S. tour dates between pandemic peaks and new variants.
As they continue to define their perceptive line between pop and new wave sensibilities, their nods to current and veteran post-punk staples remain ever more present on Underneath, Beside Me.
