If you ask any visitor of the International UFO Museum in Roswell about their visit, they might tell you it looks like a middle school diorama at a science fair. Harsh, yes. Accurate? I'll say this: Don't listen to them if they haven't gone to the UFO Festival in late June/early July.
Taking a step back after weeks of listening to read all the lyrics, straight through without music, I began to admire this EP even more. As a concept album, every song is an extension of the last, unveiling another part of the story. Each song contains a call back, lyrically, to the previous song, and I felt it allowed me to connect much deeper with the songs.
In a scene largely represented by straight white men, Sharptooth aim to make waves in the hardcore scene as a female fronted band with their debut full length album "Clever Girl". The album was recorded in their hometown of Baltimore, Maryland by Paul Leavitt at Valencia Recording.

The War on Science is nothing new. It has been ongoing for decades. But, with the inauguration of Donald Trump, the War on Science and facts has been codified. So many groups have not seen as formidable and staunch an opponent as Trump all at the same time since, well, a long time.

I don’t really do any tricks. I try to keep the arrangements as simple as possible. I’ll have a different guitar sound for the choruses. Probably layered with some extra guitars, leads and arpeggios, but I don’t do any stereo widening plugin tricks or anything. That always sounds weird and distracting to me. Ya depending on how sparse the verses are, I might pan the verse guitars in a bit if I feel like there is a hole in the middle.
