PARTS & LABOR’s BJ Warshaw releases solo album

P&L’s BJ Warshaw has just released his first solo record under the moniker Shooting Spires, on the band’s own Cardboard Records. It has been described as “an agoraphobic mix of soaring choruses and tormented electronics, fueled on Brian Eno, Boredoms and Peter Gabriel”. Warshaw fuses off-kilter electronic beats, oscillator blips, glitchy loops, toy keyboards, distorted guitars, saxophone, drums and found percussion. All of this is the therapeutic underscore to lyrics about failed relationships (“Embers”), redemption in the face of seemingly inescapable cycles (“Quarantine”), the persistent threat of personal and global catastrophe (“Alive And Well”) and finding solace in decay (“Right”).

It can be purchased through the Cardboard Records website
