Batrider

Two Bright Lakes is duly stoked to have Batrider and their fourth albumĀ Piles of Lies in the fold. Sarah Chadwick, Sam Featherstone and Stephanie Crase have survived eight years of line-up changes, spending 191 days a year in a van in foreign countries, supermarket bread and cheese, countless moves and too many cigarettes to bring to the surface an album both depressing and fantastic, a work that is laced with addictive raw emotional energy and encapsulates terse and joyous times.
