"Hooligans" is the debut EP from Brooklyn based Neighbors. The album was written and recorded by Noah Stitelman in his apartment, with mixing and additional production work done by Kyle "Slick" Johnson (Modest Mouse, The Hives, Rogue Wave). Paper Brigade is releasing it as a white vinyl 7" and digital EP on June 22nd, 2010. It's available at all digital retailers and online through the Paper Brigade store directly.
About: Formed in 2009, Neighbors came together following the break up of Stitelman's former band, Jacksonknife. Joined by Evan Johnson, Brian Harney, Steph McParty and Anne Minor, Neighbors signifies a more focused vehicle for Stitelman's song writing. Neighbors' lush, layered blend of synth and guitar, coupled with Stitelman's stripped down delivery, channels subtle reminders of '80s UK new wave and '90s synth pop, but never drowns in a sea of obscure influences from another era. "I really wanted this record to be grounded in the present," says Stitelman. As a testament to this vision, the rigors of present day life are reflected: caustic daily relationships, questionable advice, wrong turns. "The lyrics focus on relationships you have with friends and co-workers, and how to communicate," says Stitelman. L Magazine had this to say: "Noah Stitelman's world-weary lyrics and deadpan delivery leads you to think he's pretty much over it, whatever 'it' may be, but the backing instrumentation implies otherwise...even Neighbors' slower tracks are alive and full-sounding, with layers crashing and tumbling all over each other like a psychedelic Arcade Fire."
