The Olympia three-piece Broken Water— a sometimes noisy, sometimes droning, often pretty and subtly poppy band—is very much a product of its hometown. After a number of shape-shifting releases, the band has managed the rare feat of evolution in the service of a signature sound, wild experimentation that ultimately works as a harness, locking down the music’s unique and idiosyncratic internal logic. Tempest is their second full-length LP and first for Hardly Art. Recorded at Buzz or Howl Studios with Stan Wright. All LPs include a download code.
