Routine Death - 2 Weeks To 4 Months
This is the Fuzz Club membership record for October.
‘2 Weeks to 4 Months’ is the second album from Gothenburg-via-Texas duo Routine Death, comprised of Lisa and Dustin Zozaya. The album fuses shoegaze-y psych-pop and lo-fi electronics to create something that’s at times mesmerising and atmospheric and at others, distorted and unpredictable. The new album arrives following their 2018 debut album Parallel Universes and a summer of live dates that included a short tour with Wooden Shjips and performance at Fuzz Club Eindhoven 2019.
Lisa and Dustin – two musicians from Sweden and the US respectively – met whilst Dustin was on the road with his previous band Holy Wave. Now married but still separated by 7000 odd miles, the pair began working on music together to bide the time and give them something to channel themselves into collectively. After a few years spent recording things in their bedrooms and sending them forwards and backwards via WeTransfer, in 2018 the duo released their first set of songs as Routine Death: a debut album called ‘Parallel Universes’.
Just over a year on and they’re back with another collection of songs which, Dustin says, picks up where the last left off: “2 weeks to 4 months is the second part of this whole thing. There are some similarities to the last record, Lisa and I wrote and recorded it separately for the most part. It’s a collection of songs that are pretty reflective and cohesive of a certain period of our lives. When I started to look at all the work we’d done I realized it was one linear piece.”
Limited to 300 copies on coloured 180 gram vinyl.
