NP180 Merchandise- Totale Nite LP

There isn't going to be any shortage of words on the new Merchandise full length LP Totale Nite but something some of those words might miss out on is the special uniting and friendship between Merchandise and Night-People this record finds as its backdrop. The prior Merchandise LP, Children of Desire was a stunner but we were paying attention, listening and talking about working together even before those songs took proper shape, knowing full well the beauty and capacity of greatness Merchandise would fulfill unconcerned with any attention from the outside. Fast forward through passing meetings on the road via tours, time spent up late at the Night-People HQ jamming records and talking into the early hours and things started to get closer to the materialization of working together. Tampa FL is a different sort of place to be from then the major cultural cities of influence and that is something we understand and gravitate towards at Night-People. Sometimes the more isolated locations produce more uniqueness in the absence of stimulation or bigger opportunity. With Merchandise you can't just look at the surface because there is so much more in the collective spirit of the surrounding art and music, solo projects, additional bands, the music that came before in its richness and depth. Totale Nite is the distillation of experience, working hard, thinking deep while letting the spirit move forward unhindered. This record captures so much beyond any kind of obvious influence focusing the self-produced and recorded atmosphere into an even more distinct Merchandise sound, dreamy dense post-punk drifter ballads that are as textured and dynamic as they are laden with pop sensibility. Sonic Boom provided a stellar detailed mastering job and the Wet Hair design team facilitated perhaps their best design effort yet to finish off the final details for one of the finest albums Night-People will surely ever release.
