The 19th installment of Saddle Creek’s Document series comes from two bands - Bedlocked and Teethe.
Teethe and Bedlocked are, cumulatively, a sonic manifestation of the unyielding strength in sprawl that Texas has always had in droves. Bedlocked is music written by J. Zach Gomez while Teethe is a slowcore band currently based in Dallas, Texas whose members consist of Boone Patrello of Dead Sullivan, Grahm Robinson of MAH KEE OH, Madeline Dowd of Crisman, and Jordan Garrett of Hat Hair.
Both tracks in this split carry a warm sentimentality, the kind of communal current that leaps from one shitty backyard beer to the next, shared with the chosen family of the house shows these two bands formed a new mold in. “All Over Again” is getting to a point where you nd yourself having to restart the process of growing and changing just when it felt like it you were getting better,” says Gomez of Bedlocked. The space created in the heavy, distorted churning of “All Over Again“ and the airy, loving banter of “Moon” both, in their opposition, evoke the kind of endless, open, questioning sky that you can count on no matter where in the Lone Star State you find yourself.
The Document Series has always been about showcasing the untapped potential of DIY spaces across the country — what place could be more emblematic of that than the only state you can nd yourself touring through for an entire week, still feeling like you’ve more to see? Suburban outcasts, West Texas teens, and coastal punks reach a commonality through music here unlike anywhere else. Welcome to a new era of solidarity in reverb.
