Boomkat Product Review:
Tearist acutely impressed with their eponymous 12" for Post Present Medium last year. They return with a live album 'Living: 2009-Present', documenting their notorious live shows in LA over the last two years. Those shows and these tracks feature Yasmine Kittles' (also ov Former Ghosts) unheimlich punk yelps and raucous percussion welded with William Strangeland's catalytic, spasmodic synthesizer and sputtering drum machines. The recordings were made in warehouses, lofts, concert halls and the like and present the band in their sweat drenched and blistering form.
