Straight A’s are getting ready to release their first full-length record on Noise Pollution. Entitled “Self Help”, it was recorded in the Summer of 2009 by Trip Barriger at Studio K (hope you weren’t surprised by that) except for the song “Trestles” which was recorded by Brian Lueken at Skull Alley. With eighteen songs in about 35 minutes featuring guests appearances by Thommy Browne (By the Grace of God, Chime Hours, et al), Susan Crocker and Dan Moore (Lucky Pineapple) the A’s are seeking to outdo themselves in terms of flexibility and range from their self titled 7″.
Here’s a note from the guys about the record being released: “Straight A’s will play the SXSE festival. Friday April 23rd. We will be joined by Thommy Browne on 2nd drums and will have advance copies of our debut album “Self Help”. Come pick up a copy (or two) before that other guy and have some fun with us!”
Here’s a preview of the record:
