Following on the underground buzz generated off 2015’s debut LP Timeline, Mild High Club returned in 2016 with their latest effort, Skiptracing (Stones Throw), a thematic, psychedelic jazz-pop odyssey whose story arc follows a private investigator attempting to trace the steps of the sound and the spirit of American music.

Originally hailing from Chicago, Alexander Brettin, who writes and records under the moniker Mild High Club, relocated to Los Angeles in 2012, where his demos caught the ears of prominent local musicians and labels. After signing with Stones Throw Records, Mild High Club released their debut LP in September 2015, which Pitchfork described as “a record full of psychedelic soft rock that draws strongly from White-album era Beatles and T-Rex, with swirls of '80s-indebted synthpop.”

The band quickly became a preferred supporting act on the road, touring with King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Allah-las, Quilt, Youth Lagoon, Wire, and appearing at festivals across the globe, their live act described as “hypnotizing and ethereal”.

The release of 2016’s Skiptracing was a major step forward for the band, which Aquarium Drunkard described as a “cool, grooving blend of lo-fi psych, lounge, and exotica” and was followed by sold out club tours across North America and Europe, as well as festivals in South America and Australia, and continue to tour regularly.

“The cut worm forgives the plough.” – from William Blake’s Proverbs of Hell

Cut Worms is the nom de plume of Max Clarke, assumed while studying illustration at Chicago's Columbia College. Relocating to New York City in October 2015 shortly after releasing a collection of demos via Chicago's Dumpster Tapes, Cut Worms soon began generating tremendous buzz with the stark, timeless honesty of the demo recordings as well as incomparable live performances, showcasing a powerful vocal talent equally compelling for its vulnerability, that calls to mind greats like The Everly Brothers, Harry Nilsson, and Buddy Holly. Cut Worms spent 2016 supporting dates with The Growlers, Foxygen, Steve Gunn, Jessica Pratt, and more, quickly becoming an opening act of choice in New York City, while preparing a forthcoming debut LP.
