SEAN POSILA, who records under the moniker SEAN HENRY, has been writing music since he was a kid. On A Jump from the High Dive, his second proper full-length, childhood and adulthood coalesce to display his most confident and animated work to date. Sean Henry’s new collection is a departure from the more straightforward garage rock found on 2018 release Fink. But the signature Sean Henry moments are still there—simultaneously innocent, in-your-face and endearingly strange. A Jump from the High Dive is a bundle of energy through a focused lens, each song reminiscent of the standout track on a gifted mix CD. A Jump from the High Dive was co-produced with BRIAN ANTONUCCI, who Sean anointed his “teenage guru” after meeting in Catholic high school and bonding over a Dead Kennedys’ t-shirt. The two spent countless hours fine tuning the songs in the studio, even sleeping there. Sean recalls tracking most of the songs with a “scrapbooking” approach. “Starting with the drums and bass, we would build a foundation, sometimes making our own instrumental samples specifically for drums, inspired by hip-hop songs. There would be elements from the demos that we couldn’t beat so we would keep the original version instead or sample our favorite elements from it.” Similar to early records from Wilco and Beck, they employed a “spiritual layer” on each song—an ambient and noisy track that adds a layer of support on the song, complemented by polished pop elements. Pressed on aqua blue vinyl.
