Human Potential – Heartbreak Record
Andrew Becker has bashed drums for Discord Records angsters, Medications
, and the even angstier Screens from Brooklyn. That band had had enough by 2011, and according to Becker, he “consulted a high end, spiritual assassin who foretold a life just above the poverty line if he attempted to transpose the Bee Gees 1st
into an aural nightscape of loss, regret and heartache.” You can decide yourself if that is an apt description of the man’s first solo album where he plays everything himself, and even released it himself, on What Delicate Recordings
. It is certainly a melodious left berm-curve from his math-core past. It’s called Heartbreak Record
, out this week, and here’s a track to try, the lilting “The Weight Of Weathering,” below.
