It's been less than a year since Lubec released their sophomore album, but the Portland trio are back with Dividends, a new EP and an East Coast tour. Due out September 29th via Disposable America, their latest is a clamoring mix of dreamy pop, blistering shoegaze, and detached flashes of post-punk. "Right Supply" is our first taste, a song swarming with blissed out fuzz and a delicate piano lead. Caroline Jackson howls and croons, reserved in the verses and bursting with energy on the hook, driving her piano dissonance into a emotionally charged attack. Balancing optimism with a layered fury, Lubec contort conventional dream-pop with interesting progressions and shuffling rhythms. Dividends is a diverse record and "Right Supply" is only one piece of the puzzle.
