"Since 2008, Merchandise have amassed a cult following among punk and hardcore fans, a result of years spent playing in such Tampa bands as Cult Ritual, Neon Blud, Divisions, and Church Whip, to name a few. That foundation is still in many ways the backbone of Merchandise: playing music as a means not an end, making do with shitty equipment, touring with broken bones. 'With punk, you count on no one but yourself,' the band's Carson Cox said. 'That is, to me, the most important experience.'" - Pitchfork
Hey kid, need a lift? Like, right up off the ground? Spill into Atmosphere is the freshest whitecap in the crashing-upward wave known as Wet Hair, the Midwestern duo-cum-trio that's been holding it down for years as a multi-stop repeat-shop-'n-hop psych-pop pin-drop right there in the dead center of everything and/or nothing, Iowa City. The Wet Hair discography having spired itself to a respectable vantage -- shared releases with such powers as Rene Hell, Naked on the Vague and Peaking Lights, both via frontmensch Shawn Reed's Night People imprint and others -- Spill into Atmosphere becomes the band's second full-length with De Stijl. There is motion here, oh yeah -- circling swirls of lighter-than-air energy, born aloft on propellers of foam yet anchored to earth with thunder-clap rhythms and Reed's heady bellow. Spill into Atmosphere gives you that feeling you had when you finally mastered the controls on your hovercraft: You're both in it and above it.
