The Evens – “Warble Factor”

Tom Breihan | November 18, 2011 - 12:48 pm

In the middle of the last decade, the former Teen Idles/Minor Threat/Skewbald/Embrace/Egg Hunt/Fugazi frontman Ian MacKaye got together with former Warmers drummer Amy Farina to form a duo called the Evens. Together, they released two criminally underrated albums. Their style was basically the classic Dischord post-hardcore style, slowed down and muted and sweetened with some truly gorgeous harmonies.

For perfectly understandable reasons, they took a break for a few years after releasing 2006’s Get Evens. (They had a kid together.) And now they’re back with a new single, “Warble Factor” b/w “Timothy Wright,” which gloriously brings back the sound of those two albums. Stream “Warble Factor” below.

“Warble Factor” b/w “Timothy Wright” is out 11/24 on Dischord. There’s also an album coming next year.
