Hi, it's me JEFF ROSENSTOCK. I write these descriptions and it's hard to write one for your own record, but here I go. This is the first record I've made with a band since Bomb the Music Industry! We recorded with Jack Shirley and we tried to make pop songs that got real weird and gross. This is a split release with SideOneDummy - they were cool enough to let me put this up for free, so if you like it please consider purchasing a record, donating or if you're broke just share it with some buddies. This music is here for you regardless of your income. Hope to see ya one day!!
Recorded by Jack Shirley (Joyce Manor, Deafheaven), whose Bay area Atomic Garden studio played host to Rosenstock’s new band, We Cool? is sonically ambitious, overdriven, and immediate. Along with a band featuring Hard Girls guitarist Mike Huguenor, Bruce Lee Band drummer Kevin Higuchi, and former Bomb bassist John DeDomenici, the foundation of each song was recorded live to tape inside of a day. We Cool? layers its harmonies, organs, and clarinets on top of this energetic, barebones base, recalling earlier melodic motifs or creating massive climaxes that carry the listener through its twelve songs. With additional elements added in the customary New York apartments and parents’ homes that Rosenstock is known for, every song here possesses its own unique character, from the ‘90s post-punk dirge of “I’m Serious, I’m Sorry” to the vintage power-pop of “Hey Allison!.”
