One word: Awesome. I’ve listened to this couple of tracks two or three times at this point and have continued finding positive things to say. I have good feelings about Screens’ upcoming album, Dead House.

SCREENS (FEATURING MEMBERS OF THE APES, MEDICATIONS & THE MALL) DEBUT ALBUM, DEAD HOUSE DUE MAY 17 ON WHAT DELICATE RECORDINGS
Performing at NYC’s Williamsburg Fashion Weekend - February 18 @ Glasslands
Dead House, Screens' debut full-length, will be released on May 17, 2011 on drummer Andrew Becker’s own What Delicate Recordings. Download “Pop Logic” from Dead House here .
Eldritch weird wavers, Screens seeped into existence in early 2009, after Washington, D.C. defectors, drummer Andrew Becker (Dischord Records’, Medications) and vocalist Breck Brunson (psych-sludge purveyors, The Apes) hooked up with keyboardist, Daniel Roland Tierney (San Francisco aggressors, The Mall) and guitarist, Luke Kozikowski in New York City.
After bonding over their mutual affection for Harry Partch, Harry Nilsson and Harry Pussy, the quartet began congregating in a Lavvu above a Sami fish market, perfecting a sound that simultaneously sounded like a soothing Congolese dust storm and a toddler exploding in the night. Following countless frenzied shows in the moistest of east coast squats, Screens decamped to the rock and roll mecca of Hockessin, Delaware with reclusive and DMT diluted super-producer, L. Skell (remarkably overweight genius behind 2007’s unheralded classic Eldridge Skell’s The Rude Staircase - Sookie Jump) and engineer, Nick Krill (The Spinto Band), to craft a spirited mess of unbridled dystopia slathered in a rich, pasty, psychedelic batter.
Screens will be playing on Friday, February 18 at Glasslands as a part of Williamsburg Fashion Weekend. More tour dates will be announced shortly.
