Jam of the Day | The Depreciation Guild - My Chariot

New York’s The Depreciation Guild (lead by The Pains of Being Pure At Heart’s drummer Kurt Feldman) have made one hell of a beautiful sophomore album - stretching out their fuzzy, 8-bit infused dream-pop into anthemic territory. The most noticeable aspects being the vocals and rhythms have been pushed up front - accentuating what I'm pretty sure is the old-school Nintendo music backed by guitars and choruses.

The production on our Jam of the Day "My Chariot," and the album as a whole, is extremely sharp. It retains the spirit of the band's chiptune/shoegaze foundation while providing a smoother, poppier, and altogether more uplifting sound.
