Baltimore, Maryland's Alter is a promising new outfit that constructs beautifully atmospheric shoegaze-infused post-rock. These guys recently dropped a debut EP that really absorbed me at first listen. This trio creates layers of sounds with trance-inducing guitar noise, blanketing bass tones, driving percussion and monotone-yet-melodic vocal harmonies . Bookhouse Records will soon release "False Dawn" on cassette, but until then, snag a digital download below, then buy the shit outta that tape when it drops! DIG!
