Disq have assembled a razor-sharp, teetering-on-the-edge-of-chaos melange of sounds, experiences, memories, and influences. Due out March 6 on Saddle Creek, Collector ought to be taken literally—it is a place to explore and catalogue the Madison, Wisconsin band’s relationships to themselves, their pasts, and the world beyond the American Midwest as they careen from their teens into their 20s. This turbulence is backdropped by gnarled power pop, anxious post-punk, warm psych-folk, and hectic, formless, tongue-in-cheek indie rock.
Collector, like the band itself, is defined and tightly-contoured by the ties between the five members. Raina Bock (bass/vocals) and Isaac deBroux-Slone (guitar/vocals) have known each other from infancy, growing up and into music together. Through gigging around Madison, they met and befriended Shannon Connor (guitar/keys/vocals), Logan Severson (guitar/vocals), and Brendan Manley (drums)—three equally dedicated and adventurous musicians committed to coaxing genre boundaries.
Produced by Rob Schnapf, Collector is a set of songs largely pulled from each of the five members’ demo piles over the years. They’re organic representations of each moment in time, gathered together to tell a mixtape-story of growing up in 21st century America. The songs are marked by urgency, introspection, tongue-in-cheek nihilism, and a shrewd understanding of pop and rock structures and their corollaries—as well as a keen desire to dialogue with and upset them.
To celebrate the album announcement, Disq share Collector’s album opener and lead single entitled “Daily Routine.” The hard-hitting track is a massive introduction to the record, encapsulating a fatigued modern nausea, as deBroux-Slone declares in an apathetic, tuneful groan “This is my daily routine/Spend my hours on a computer screen…I’m in prison but I think this place was built by me.” He’s backed by woozy guitars before the whole band crashes in like a panic attack, with tempo darting up and down throughout the song.
"’Daily Routine' is a song about an intense personal struggle,” Isaac deBroux-Slone explains. “In dark times, life can feel like a cycle that I’m trapped in, repeating over and over with no means of escape. It’s easy to fall into a void, thinking that everybody else has it all figured out, while losing sight of the fact that many others feel exactly the same way.”
"The track is a searing power-pop cut with a healthy dose of gnarled guitars. It’s the perfect fusion of their pop sensibilities and punchy live shows. It’s also packed with the kind of youthful angst and much-needed antics that characterize the current millennial experience." – Paste Magazine
"It’s a hard-hitting multi-part pop-rock suite that reminds me of the end of Abbey Road given the Car Seat Headrest treatment." – Stereogum
“Daily Routine,” mixes indie rock with just a little honky tonk that, lyrically, deals with breaking out of a monotonous cycle." – Brooklyn Vegan
"Meet Disq: Saddle Creek-signed slackers making the Midwest sound a whole lot more cosmic with some kaleidoscopic alt-pop wonder"
