Formed from the ashes of New Brunswick, NJ, indie stalwarts Aviso’ Hara, Eastern Anchors have been blowing listeners’ eardrums since 2007. Their newest aural assault, a split 7-inch single, finds the group — Walter (guitar/vocal), Dave (bass/vocals) and Ken(Drums) — sharing sides with fellow hub city rockers Zero for Conduct. The Anchors’ contribution, “Above Your Station,” is an impassioned reminder that their brand of 90’s indie needs to be kept alive even when much of the world turns a deaf ear. When Walter declares “you can’t catch a break to save your soul so you must raise up your kids on rock-n-roll” its a sincere call to arms — or fuzzed out guitars as the case may be — that simply can’t be dismissed. This exclusive piece of vinyl, as well as the band’s recent full-lendth Drunken Arts and Pure Science, were both recorded and mixed by Tom Beaujour (Nada Surf, Jennifer O’Connor, Guided by Voices) at Nuthouse Recording in Hoboken, NJ, and mastered by Kim Rosen at Knack Mastering. The Anchors will drop another full-length on your head next year, but hopefully this will satisfy your rock Jones until then. Sleeve artwork and design by the mighty Mike Hilton.
