mazes: wooden aquarium

Completed in just two weeks between the sub-zero conditions of commuter town Cornwall, New York and the heart of Brooklyn, Wooden Aquarium marks the apex at which Mazes' music to date meets. While debut album A Thousand Heys was recorded on a boat and recent album Ores and Minerals was recorded across numerous takes in the back room of Dalston's Shacklewell Arms and Jack's bedroom, Wooden Aquarium has brought Cooper, drummer Neil Robinson and bassist Conan Roberts together in a studio again. Recorded completely live and laid down entirely onto beautifully thick two-inch tape, the trio also had company in enlisting the skills of Parquet Courts' producer Jonathan Schenke. Akin to Field Music's articulate songwriting prowess and the punky guitar rhythms of The Feelies or Television, and see-sawing between extreme confidence and self doubt the record is packed with hypnotic lo-fi pop melodies and motorik rhythms bolstered by spiky hooks and Cooper's distinctively carefree vocals.
