If the topic of conversation is spiders, then the brown recluse is one of the most venomous eight-legged critters in the United States, and we here at Speakers in Code don’t ever want to encounter one of these creepy crawlies. If we’re talking music, however, then Brown Recluse is a beguiling six-person (twelve-legged) indie pop band from Philly of whom we can’t get enough.
Brown Recluse’s debut LP, Evening Tapestry, was released on March 15th of this year (Slumberland). The lead single from the record is “Impressions of a City Morning,” a purified pop cut, clocking in at just over two minutes. The jam has a captivating Belle and Sebastian-y quality, and it is easy to be swept up in the charm of the buoyant arrangement. As warm air and blue skies finally settle in across much of the nation, you’ll no doubt want to have this tune on with the windows down and your Ray-Bans on. “Impressions of a City Morning” is feel good, springtime music at its finest. Ain’t nothing wrong with that.
