Merge Records artists Vertical Scratchers are somewhat new on the scene, but their members have been at it for some time. The California-based duo is comprised of John Schmersal–who spent time in Brainiac, Enon, Crooks on Tape, Caribou & Crooks on Tape–and Christian Beaulieu, of Triclops! & Anywhere.
Their songs are punk-quick shots of infectious pop goodness, and we were excited to host them at the Bureau. Check out this quick sampling of the band as they perform “These Plains” from their debut album, Daughter of Everything.
