I just heard about Teacher a couple months ago from Mike and Rachel of Devils Child Records. Teacher is comprised of 2 Teachers-Jonathan Ethan Mercer: Drums, Guitars, Vocals and Solomon Arye Rosenschein: Guitar, Vocals, they both transplanted at different times to Seattle but somehow came full circle to once again play some tunes and teach?
I was stoked to see their name pop up on the band submissions so I jumped at the chance to review this album knowing we will be sharing sound waves soon at the Substation in Seattle for D.C.R's Heavy fest day 1. with other D.C.R alum as well.
When listening to Teacher its hard to pinpoint a specific "genre" on them, but Stoner Blues, 70's Metal, space rock, classic rock influenced will do just fine. .
They cover a wide spectrum of sounds on this album which keeps it fresh and not repetitious. My favorite track right now is panoptican, I feel the last 4 tracks were written in a similar vein so they run together as if it was meant for vinyl. I guess I'll ask them when we play in July and I'll give it a spin next week when I get it in the mail!
You can buy the digital album now or wait until June 17th to buy the Vinyl.
