Oct. 2, 2017, Albuquerque, N.M.. – Spotlights, the husband-and-wife “sludgegazers” (Brooklyn Vegan) who release their Ipecac debut, Seismic, on Oct. 6, are streaming the album:

Seismic came out of a reaction to the current state of humanity and the inevitable consequences we will have on this earth and ourselves,” explains Mario. “There’s an odd sense of beauty that comes with destruction, and we tried to capture that musically on this album.” Seismic was produced by Aaron Harris (Isis/Palms) and recorded this spring in Los Angeles. Pre-orders for the 11-track album are available now:

Spotlights have spent the summer on the road with the Melvins, joining the venerable band for their 12-week North American tour. The LA Record said of the Spotlight’s kick offperformance: “The husband-wife duo of Mario and Sarah Quintero (guitar and bass, respectively) dabble in a mix of electronic dream-pop and heavier-than-hell sludge metal, putting them alongside Jesu or Hum as extremists of both beauty and brutality.“ The tour’s last two dates are this week, followed by a hometown show with Pelican on Oct. 6 at the Brooklyn Bazaar.
