Spotlights, the Brooklyn-based husband and wife outfit of Mario and Sarah Quintero, release their Ipecac Recordings' debut, Seismic. "Seismic came out of a reaction to the current state of humanity and the inevitable consequences we will have on this earth and ourselves," explains Mario. "There's an odd sense of beauty that comes with destruction, and we tried to capture that musically on this album." Seismic was produced by Aaron Harris (Isis, Palms) and recorded this spring in Los Angeles. Spotlights' previous release, Tidals, earned the band a wide sweep of accolades with Clrvynt describing the band's music as "ultra-dense dream-rock" while Brooklyn Vegan deemed the pair "sludgegazers."
