Week Ender – Graham Repulski

The Omega to the Week Starter Alpha, Week Ender is the song we want to send you into the weekend with.

On the surface the GBV lo-fi thing seems like it would be easy to replicate, and lord knows we’ve received many a submission of those who’ve tried. Blow out most, if not all the tracks, for instant Uncle Bob magic. But what most of them forget is that underneath the layers of fuzz and squall there has to be a killer song fighting to break through, that’s the magic part. Luckily for us “Flaming Television” by Graham Repulski gets it right. So right in fact that it’d be easy to think this was a lost Pollard track (not that there are any lost Pollard tracks because he releases everything, constantly); and while we generally don’t dig it when artists stick so close to their inspirations we do dig this. Because it’s rare to hear someone get the formula right, and because as prodigious as BP is the world could always use more perfect pop songs wrapped in chaos.
