The Up-Turn

European noise-rockers, The Uptights, have really killed it with their 2011 release At the Wörthersee Hotel which is just starting to make its rounds through the blogosphere.  The Uptights play a dark, messy strain of lo-fi and noise pop that definitely pulls influence from Guided by Voices and punk.  At the Wörthersee Hotel is easily one of the most original and realized takes on lo-fi that I’ve heard in a longtime with tracks ranging from ambient/noise to guitar driven pop.  Some of my favorite tracks are ‘Hairdresser’, ‘Geraldine’ and ‘Adalbert Schwede’ all showcasing The Uptights enormous talent.  The album just passes the 20-minute length and can be streamed below and downloaded for free at their bandcamp.
