Inter Arbiter, the brand new LP by Inlets came out this week (April 20) via twosyllable records and tonight (April 23) Sebastian Krueger (aka the man behind Inlets) is having a record release party at Union Hall along with A Weather and Jared Van Fleet. I might expect some special guests to show up too.
Inter Arbiter congealed in the free spaces between working full time at a civil rights organization, adhering to acceptable and neighborly hours for noisemaking, and recurrent existential crises. The self-recorded album has an unexpectedly broad three-dimensional impact for an effort managed nearly entirely within the spartan low fidelity confines of a small apartment bedroom.
Throughout the process of recording Inter Arbiter, Krueger remained a busy collaborator, assisting My Brightest Diamond with woodwinds, playing banjo with Feist on Saturday Night Live, and contributing to records by DM Stith and Marla Hansen. The new record includes help from friends like Beirut frontman Zach Condon, Dirty Projector’s vocalist Angel Deradoorian, as well as cellist Maria Jeffers and violist Marla Hansen of the string quartet Osso.
