Your Skull My Closet

Your Skull My Closet

 New York City, New York, USA

YSMC's second EP We Find One Another will be released in April 2011. Recorded at Seaside Lounge ( Obits, the National ) and mixed by J. Robbins ( Jawbox ), the 7-song collection will get release parties in Detroit ( April 30 th ) and NYC.


Your Skull My Closet began performing in Brooklyn, NY in 2008 with the expressed intent of resexualizing the nation’s college rock scene (having no idea the format had died in the late 80s). Featuring ex-members of Detroit’s infamous psycho-core unit Thoughts of Ionesco and Michigan’s post-hardcore heroes Small Brown Bike, YSMC migrated to the big, rotten apple in search of inspiration and humiliation. They found both, and their debut EP Let’s Get Acquainted tells the tales of bloodsucking Lower East Side debutantes, car service drug escorts, urban paranoia, and does so with an undeniably Midwestern sincerity. There’s love; there’s romance; there’s loose nuts… lost marbles. YSMC’s pop damage is delightful in the way of all our favorite rock n’ roll crackpots (Mike Patton, Josh Homme, Weird Al). These are musicians who grew up on a fusion of the SST back catalog and 1980’s Trans Am hair metal before belatedly discovering the delicious pop stylings of Bananramma and Yaz in the late 2000s. Thus YSMC’s avant sound is a cantankerous, circuitous tour through anglo-rock’s recent history. Recorded in a Brooklyn loft-space and mixed in Detroit, Let’s Get Acquainted is their first offering to the audiophile/audio-phallic cosmos. It beats the shit out of the Vivian Girls but isn’t as good as Drive Like Jehu–– we’re ready to admit that. But there’s a place for YSMC… you might rather pay for a 25-cent peep than a ten-dollar concert ticket, but there is a place. And we’re here to accommodate. How about a quickie? Let’s Get Acquainted!
