Mild High Club

Skiptracing

stones throw



CD

Released: 26th Aug 2016

£11.99


If Todd Rundgren was the primary touchstone for debut album 'Timeline', Brettin and band now look to the wry wit of Steely Dan, gazing deep into the dark underbelly of sun-bright LA & coming away with catchy songs underpinned by slippery jazz phrasings.

mild high club is the musical brainchild of Alexander Brettin, who grew up playing flute in the school band & majoring in jazz studies in Chicago. In 2012, a visit to LA allowed him to connect with the Stones Throw crew. Within a year, after passing the early demos of what would become his debut album 'Timeline' onto Peanut Butter Wolf, Brettin made the move out west. Brettin describes the album’s story arc is that of a “private investigator attempting to trace the steps of the sound and the spirit of American music.” in investigating the spirit of American music, Mild High Club re-imagine AM radio hits as blasting in from a parallel universe, the sound of early 70s LA in a smog of sativa.
