Dawn Chorus is Everything You Love About LKFFCT and More
Not that they ever really went away, but LKFFCT is BACK fellow Earthlings, or should I say, RTHLNGS. Yes, your favorite heavy hitting, vowel absent, North Jersey DIY kings have graced indie music lovers yet again with their 3rd full length release. Dawn Chorus is their most eclectic and well-structured album yet and it is exactly what a band’s junior effort should sound like. Developed, mature, and honest, the album beautifully encapsulates everything from the fear of lost love to the peace found in a simple walk down Bloomfield Ave.
Max Rauch Talks Working With Sniffling Indie Kids: “A label that passionately cares about what it brings to NJ.”
The first time N.J. Racket covered a NGHTCRWLRS show, Cooper took about two hundred photos of the set, and I’d guess about one hundred of those were of the band’s drummer Max Rauch. His excuse was “that dude has too much fun for me to take pictures of anyone else.” Totally accurate assessment. The second time we covered NGHTCRWLRS played out pretty much the same, only this time we introduced ourselves after the show and were thrilled to learn that not only is Max an excellent drummer that has a ton of fun performing, but he is also an incredibly chill and good dude.
Max Rauch is a name you’ve almost definitely heard before on N.J. Racket. Aside from NGHTCRWLRS, we’ve also covered his other band LKFFCT and we’ve reviewed more albums that he’s recorded and engineered than I can keep track of, including Salt Pepper Ketchup, from our own John Cozz, and most recently Within My World, by Sunflower. Max is easily one of the hardest working members of New Jersey’s DIY community and I am endlessly impressed by both the quantity and quality that he continues to produce and the knowledge and talent he shares with so many other artists is truly invaluable.
