2019 Record Store Day release - 10th anniversary blue vinyl reissue of the debut album from Brooklyn’s The Depreciation Guild.
Mixing a collage of guitars, drums, fuzzy electronics and heartfelt lyrics, In Her Gentle Jaws has always been a surprisingly seamless mix of laptop pop and shoegaze. The fuzzed-out, reverb-drenched melodies draw influences from shoegaze guitar walls, dreampop highs, and the rigidity of electronic rhythms with the use of an 8-bit Nintendo soundcard. The modified entertainment system is used to compose a crushing backdrop of rhythmic, synthetic elements.
The Depreciation Guild was founded by Kurt Feldman, who has been active in the Brooklyn music scene since 2007. As drummer and member of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Feldman often pulled double duty while keeping up with and touring in two bands simultaneously. When the heavy tour schedule subsided, Feldman turned his focus to production having a hand in the mixing and engineering on several high profile indie releases (DIIV, Chairlift, No Joy and Kristin Kontrol).
