Quivers - We'll Go Riding On The Hearses LP
NOTE: These copies have been marked down to $15 because the box was dropped in shipment and all the jackets have a corner ding/bend to them.
Quivers is a band formed in Hobart, Tasmania and We’ll Go Riding on the Hearses was first a tape release before the band moved to Melbourne and released again on vinyl for Australia’s Hotel Motel label. It’s an album of songs written after singer Sam lost his brother, Tom, unexpectedly in a free-diving accident. It’s maybe an album about that, but also about trying to not think about that, and often comes back to ghosts, benders, water, and pissing in the snow. The album was recorded halfway up Mount Wellington/kunanyi by Anthony Rochester in just two days to not overthink it all, and celebrates the catharsis that comes from singing with friends. All my best friends are a little broken, all the best people are. That’s what the first single “Pigeons” says while Hammond circles around some really 90s guitars.
Since the album’s release Quivers have toured Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States - playing at the 2019 SXSW before filming a session for KEXP. Quivers were set to play again at SXSW in 2020 before their first long tour of the US but postponed it all when the Coronavirus hit. Quivers have released a subsequent 7” for single “You’re Not Always On My Mind” and recorded a re-imagining of REM’s Out of Time for Seattle’s Turntable Kitchen. Early 2021 will see the release of Quivers second album.
