Two cassettes in one year. Reverse three years – and you’ve got “Sounds From Friday Evening” – a demo launched directly to Soundcloud by Jordan Morrisson. His project All Your Sisters originated from the dusky Autumn year of 2011, hailing from San Fransisco, it was meant to be much more then a solo-project. From then and on into 2012 things started to brew for real and Mario Armando Ruiz joined in – turning it into a duo. During two years of hard work they had composed what fell into our arms, for our ears, a debut-album recorded between October and November of 2013. It got titled “Modern Failures” and seem to be a statement of how things are in modern society. Romantic words clad in melancholy, with titles such as “A Perfect Body” and “Good Clean Men” cling positively at a first glance—but not for them. Maybe it’s because of the portrayal of how things should be, when they’re not anything remotely close to it. Maybe it’s something else.
The album have been popular, as seen by how much people seemed to like it, but also because of the number of different labels that had released versions of it, mainly on limited cassettes as Beläten and Young Cubs did. Now Weyrd Son Records are turning it into vinyl, with aesthetically pleasing artwork that in one way or another can be related to All Your Sisters. Their rose was turned into black, on white background. Though the picture of a man’s back seem to suggest what the title “A Perfect Body” did, reflecting on the drapery in front of him – reflecting back on him, for himself to see? Not an unlikely theory. We’re, however, more intrigued about a band that does not wallow in nostalgia—though some of it can actually be pretty darn good. They do make a nice cold-wave themed backdrop associated with post-punk, with a rattly sound-scape and nicely laid vocals that suggest desperation, anger and apathy.
We’re providing you with a newly produced, unreleased track which they composed for Ljudkalendern. It’s the 17th December and you get to listen to “Shame” – a rather short endeavor; that makes good use of the time they’ve utilized when creating it. There are some fine qualities about it, the long outdrawn riffs that stop before it goes into an intermezzo, sharp and readily available percussion that resounds throughout, a myriad of different baselines, synthesizers and ambitiously entwined riffing which is changed around many times to create a diverse range to it.
