After The End iTunes

Merchandise. It’s either their third or fourth full-length — depending on how you categorize 2013 mini-album Totale Night — but crucially, their first for 4AD. Where all Merchandise’s earlier records had the ambitious but unpolished sound you might expect from a band known as much for their DIY anti-establishmentarianism as their music (they’re named after a Fugazi song and they didn’t even have a Facebook page till last October), After The End is the sound of a band that has been awarded substantial resources, and has used every last one of those resources to make a perfect, timeless record.
