The Canadian quartet

Preoccupations recently released

their eight song

album New Material

through Jagjaguwar

Records. The rock

album probably wouldn't

have made its way

to my ears if it wasn't

for visual artist

Ruff Mercy, who

I featured on the site

late last year.

Providing his signature

overlay art for the band's

music video, “Disarray”,

the guttural and guitar-

driven single is further

enhanced by a psychedelic

stroll along the cold water.
