Stumbled upon this Toronto four piece a few days ago ”Slacking Scholar” sounds exactly like what I think of when I hear the phrase “indie rock”. That mid to late 90’s catchy rock that’s not too heavy but Big Muff heavy nonetheless sound.
The 90’s was a time when a lot of bands used to come up with interesting guitars parts for each song that didn’t sound exactly like the track before. Sports aren’t ripping from that past time, but elevating the game of a band who can obviously do a whole lot more than the status quo.
The recording itself is pretty slamming as well, it’s not easy getting big guitars AND big drums, well done Peter Chapman, well done. Check it.
