The WIND-UPS – ” Try Not To Think “

Posted: June 13, 2021 in MUSIC

Born out of Covid boredom and a freshly acquired TASCAM 388 recorder in Northern California, The Wind-Ups are the fully realized bedroom project of Jake Sprecher (Terry Malts, Smokescreens, Jonathan Richman). The debut LP “Try Not To Think” is a lo-fi punk rock ‘n’ roll burst that veteran Infrasonic mastering tech Dave Gardner (Black Lips, King Khan) calls “one of the loudest records I’ve ever worked on.”

It might quickly remind you of The SaintsThe Ramones or The Spits. But listen a little longer and you’re certain to pick up on an unabashed power pop backbone, one that sources influence from The Modern LoversPaul Collins’ BeatThe Shoes and so forth.

The Wind-Ups are a project Jake (Smokescreens, Beehive, Jonathan Richman) put together during quarantine up in Chico CA. Phil (Neutrals) lives in SF and is playing bass. Cool guys like Nathan and Blaine will be playing drums. Our first record, “Try Not To Think”, comes out on Mt. St. Mtn. Records. We love power pop and punk.

all songs and instruments written, performed and recorded by Jake Sprecher at The Cottage in Chico, CA

Released on: July 14th, 2021
