Artist / Expert Alterations
On their stellar debut album, Expert Alterations proves to be keen observers of pop music both past and present. You Can’t Always Be Liked, slated to be released on October 30th, 2015 via New York based Kanine Records, is a triumph for Baltimore’s premier indiepop trio. After capturing the attention of the indie faithful with their self-titled 12” EP on Slumberland Records, Expert Alterations is poised to become the new standard-bearers of whipsmart pop tunes. Expert Alterations consults the detailed map of their predecessors — groups like The Shop Assistants, The Pastels and Television Personalities — and uses it to chart a course to a musical utopia where sonic hooks are paramount and wry lyrics celebrated.
