Babysitter - Eye [CD]
Psychic Handshake is proud to present the debut full-length from Victoria, BC rock and rollers, Babysitter. Thirteen tracks of anthemic grunge that sits nicely alongside The Wipers, Archers of Loaf, Pavement, and the like.
For years, Babysitter’s drop-out-fuzz lent itself perfectly to the less-than-perfect hiss of the cassette tape, so it took a great label like Psychic Handshake to have the keen ear to massage their sound onto long play vinyl without losing what was always so enduring. It still sounds like DRI jamming on Crazy Horse, but the music has taken on a more epic quality, something, that in the best sense of the denim/flannel stereotype, sounds Canadian as fuck while also evoking Grunge’s greatest ideals. “Never gonna die! Never gonna die!” screams “Talking ‘Bout The New Generation”, an anthem for thene’er-do-wellkids with hair in their faces and holes in their jeans, spilling Blue all over the basement floor as they slamdance to keep warm during long winters. With dedicated touring, prolific releases, and a new association with one of the country’s best indies, Eye is set to position Babysitter as modern Canrock kings.
