SPIDER BAGS

Daniel McGee formed Spider Bags in 2006, and the band now includes Rock Forbes on drums and Steve Oliva on bass.

Four years after releasing their Merge debut, Frozen LetterSpider Bags returned in 2018 with Someday Everything Will Be Fine, an LP that ascends to new levels of aural punch and perspective. The years that elapsed between records were crucial in enabling that progress to take place.

Recorded in Memphis at Bunker Audio by Andrew McCalla (who also engineered 2012’s Shake My Head),  leverages the limitations and glory of the Tascam 388, a vintage recording/mixing device that’s acquired a mythos via its association with legendary records by Dinosaur Jr. and others. Unlike the error-erasing editing software Spider Bags frontman Dan McGee has favored in the past, the Tascam’s charms are more immediate, and it has a visceral resonance all its own.
