EP: Shorelining – Shorelining

“Shorelining is an indie rock band from Milwaukee drawing on influences from Elliott Smith, Built to Spill, Broken Social Scene, and the chaotic excitement of an orchestra tuning. The self-titled EP was recorded as a solo project, but Shorelining has now expanded into a full band with plans of recording another EP this year.”

I recently came across a fantastic band from Milwaukee, WI, and it’s been a while since I’ve discovered a group from that area. I’ve always had a soft spot for exploring local bands from different parts of the USA. While we receive numerous submissions from big cities like New York, Los Angeles, and Philadelphia, getting music from other parts of the country feels like a special moment.

This particular band is creating some amazing lo-fi rock music. Their EP features six lo-fi indie rock tracks that deliver fuzzy, warm sounds, catchy guitar riffs, and an overall lively melody. From the first notes of the album, I was completely captivated. If I had to recommend just one track, it would be the single “Infinite Space,” although I’ve truly enjoyed every song. The music exudes such great energy.

Lately, I’ve been drawn to fuzzy indie rock, and this album perfectly captures the vibe I’ve been seeking. I can close my eyes and let the guitars transport me to the shores of Wisconsin’s Lake Michigan. There’s a hint of beachy, summery vibes in the EP, and I’m loving it. With the heat of summer upon us, this EP feels so refreshing that I want to dive back into it again and again, like plunging into a cool lake after a hot day. Give it a listen, and I’m sure you’ll love it too.
