Sharpless released an LP, playing CMJ shows w/ Cakes Da Killa, White Reaper, Mitski, Girlpool, Small Wonder & more

Sharpless

Brooklyn songwriter Jack Greenleaf fills almost every song in his Sharpless project with staggering amounts of layers, all focused on creating a massive atmosphere for his vocals and guitar work to live within. The music is maximalist, especially when compared to other artists in the collective Jack is part of called The Epoch (also including Told Slant, Small Wonder, Eskimeaux, Bellows and more). Like with most projects associated with The Epoch, those artists all contribute to the newest Sharpless album, The One I Wanted To Be, which dropped this past May. The album runs the shimmering cheeriness of J-Pop and K-Pop through the lens of modern DIY rock and comes out with a full-length party that pulls the all-night-chiptune-bender sound of bands like Crying and Anamanaguchi into a more personal shell. You can stream the album in full below.

Sharpless have two CMJ shows scheduled at the moment. First they play The Needle Drop/We All Want Someone To Shout For/We Listen For You’s unofficial CMJ kickoff party at Pianos on October 20 with Cakes Da Killa, Uncommon Nasa, White Reaper, Oscar and Machine Girl, which is free. Then they play the massive Miscreant Records & Father/Daughter Records-presented Concious Coupling party on October 24 at Silent Barn which goes all day (2 PM – 2 AM) with Comfy, Bad Cello, Running In The Fog, Adult Mom, Bethlehem Steel, Flagland, Attic Abasement, Mitski, Rivegazer, Girlpool, Amanda X, Jawbreaker Reunion, Bent Shapes, Nicholas Nicholas, Moon Bounce, Vagabon, Leapling and fellow Epoch member Small Wonder. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
