No Object "Makeshift"

Post-Rock group No Object (formerly Out the Car Window) has been releasing singles from their forthcoming debut album, Makeshift, for over a year now. This slow, but impressive, build has been perfect for this group that blends elements of shoegaze with emo and straightforward rock. The last single was released this month and is the album's opening and title track. Makeshift is due out April 10th.

This is the work of Jake Wahlen (Guitar, Vocals), Matt Carlton (Bass), Griffin Taylor (Drums, Vocals), and Jeff Linville (Guitar, Vocals).

Errant is the solo project Rae Amitay of Immortal Bird and Thrawsunblat and she is preparing to release her self-titled debut EP on April 3rd.
