Late Bloomer - "Dr. Abernathy" Self Aware / Tor Johnson / Lunchbox Records - A BlankTV Feature!
Artist city, country: Charlotte, North Carolina, U.S.A.
Artist Biography: Taking turns with vocal duties, the three members of Late Bloomer deftly maneuver themselves through nine tracks of fuzzy, groove-laden and melodic punk on Things Change. The trio's grungy riffs, atmospheric feedback and slightly skewed compositions bring to mind stalwarts such as Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth and Husker Du. But Late Bloomer's penchant for post-hardcore dynamics, combined with a knack for writing understatedly catchy hooks and ear-worm melodies, give the album a decidedly modern redux on '90s indie rock. When a pop-tinged chorus peeks through the beautiful muck during barnstormers that are thick with reverb and noisy interplay, it echoes peers like California X, Ovlov or perhaps a more melancholy Pity Sex. Still, there are moments when Late Bloomer slow-burns confidently into shoegaze territory, proving that it's just as comfortable exploring quieter, self-reflective passages as it is wrapping the disjointed squall of a sinewy guitar line around the propulsive and relentless rhythm section.
There's no doubt that a definitive statement has been made with Things Change; the record is one that borrows freely from the North Carolina band's indie and punk heroes, but twists and shapes those influences into an experience that is singularly Late Bloomer's own. The only real question that remains is what exciting, unexplored avenues will the trio's continued evolution take us down?

Song Lyrics: I heard you like Jimi Hendrix too
You smoke potpourri and then you go to school
Staying high almost all the time
It's a funny way to fix a broken mind
Hanging out, wasting time
Trying hard just to get it right
Your head just seems to float away
Something's wrong but you don't say
I want you to meet my doctor
I want you to meet him tonight
(I want you to know you'll never be alone)
He'll fix you up just right
