Blood in the Water, the second album by New York’s LAPÊCHE, walks the line between nature and nurture, objective reality and subjective perspective, joy and pain, suffering and hope, and addiction and sobriety. Since 2016, singer and guitarist KRISTA DIEM, her husband and bassist DAVID DiEM (12 HOUR TURN), guitarist DREW DEMAIO (ASSHOLE PARADE, FLOOR, STRIKEFORCE DIABLO) and drummer JEFF GENSTERBLUM (SMALL BROWN BIKE, ABLE BAKER FOX), have fused folk-inspired melodies with sonic backdrops inspired by punk aesthetics, DIY scenes, and basement shows. As they’ve blossomed from a singer with a backing band to a full-blown collaboration, their songs have found the power to dive deep while shining brightly, pushing toward personal growth as we collectively stare down the void. Features production and guest vocal and instrumentation from J. ROBBINS. Pressed on limited yellow vinyl.
