Jason Boyer's Nerve City has been crankin' out solid recordings for Sweet Rot, Sacred Bones, Kill Shaman, HoZac and the like for some time now, mostly covering all the recording bases himself with a noise pop fodder that keeps things shaggy and shakin' at the same time. Returning again to Sweet Rot for a second LP, this time Boyer's pulled in the full band to record Asleep On The Tracks at Memphis' Electraphonic Recording, pumping up the energy without losing a step on his own brand of thick, chemical garage. The record's embraced a bigger sound, moving from his VU / Sic Alps grind into a sunnier territory that befits his move from Virginia to Florida. The studio fits him well, with those slight production touches, a smattering of organ and Boyer's trademark slippery guitar and southern garage twang all pulsing through in thick waves; rattling speakers and melting hearts with the best of them. The album's limited to 330 and housed in a silk-screened sleeve, best nab one while they're still around.
