In Human Form (Entire Album)

About the artist

In May 2012, we moved into a commercial building in the industrial sector of Greenpoint, Brooklyn to write our second album, “In Human Form”. Living in our practice space, we sacrificed our creature comforts for creative freedom. With no residential neighbors to complain about the noise, we were able to play whenever inspiration struck. Unfortunately, all of our attempts to make the space livable failed. We built a makeshift shower using some plastic tubing and a microphone stand, though it had to be removed when it began leaking on the tenants below. We had to hide all traces of us living there incase an authority showed up. Beds were exchanged for couches. Our kitchen consisted of a microwave and hotplate, and we often skipped meals, saving money to fund the recording sessions we had booked for December. Determined to make the album a reality without outside support, we lived as cheap as humanly possible. At times the living situation drove us insane, though it forced us to escape into our music. Consumed by the writing process, every aspect our lives revolved around the band. There were weeks when we hardly left our space, and rarely saw our friends and family. While it was a struggle for us personally, this album couldn’t have been made any other way. We were recently kicked out of our building. As I write this, the four of us are scattered around the city, crashing couches and trying to figure out what’s next. It seems the only thing left to do is to release our music. “In Human Form” is available to download for free in high-quality digital formats. Our intention isn’t to devalue our music by making it free; it’s to give our music freedom because we value it being heard more than anything else. All we ask is that you listen to our album, and share it with everyone you know. Support us by paying attention, and paying it forward.

Thank you for reading this message and passing it along.

Brooklyn based Grandfather create dynamic, intense and violently rhythmic rock. The band recorded their debut album, ”Why I’d Try” in 2010 with stalwart engineer Steve Albini (Nirvana, Pixies). Believers in the raw, unencumbered sound of the analog recording process, Grandfather and Albini managed to capture the band’s frenetic, live-in-the-room intensity and create a singular, ruminative and altogether bracing introduction to their world. Their second album, “In Human Form” was produced and mixed by Alex Newport (The Mars Volta, Melvins, Fudge Tunnel) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Soundgarden, The Smashing Pumpkins). “In Human Form” was released on August 15, 2013 for free in high-quality digital formats.
