Combining the warmth of All People’s punk rock equivalent to a late night summer pickup basketball game and Tyler Scurlock’s soundtracks to the groggy early morning after, Ruin Value excels at brandishing the musicians’ mutual nostalgia to communicate their heartache through a reproduction of the early ‘90s shoegaze scene had it flourished in the basements of New Orleans.
Welcome Keeping to the fold, a new band with an already stellar pedigree. The trio of Tyler Scurlock (Sharks' Teeth), Robert Landry (All People), and Greg Rodrigue (All People) recorded their debut album Ruin Value early last year with Ross Farbe (Video Age) and they're set to release it on March 10th via Community.
