Media Jeweler – “No Exit”

Media Jeweler – “No Exit”

Media Jeweler are a Los Angeles-based quartet that makes rambunctious instrumental rock filled with jumpy guitar riffs and relentlessly pounding drums. We premiered “Passport Invalid” last month and shared previous $99 R/T Hawaii single “Autopilot” along with it, and now they’ve released the instrumental “No Exit.” The album, Media Jeweler’s first, was recorded during a “casual” three day session in Rhode Island and was mastered by XOQ (Liars, Factory Floor, Martin Gore). Media Jeweler aimed to capture a sense of restlessness in our “weird and overstimulating” world, and “No Exit” perfectly embodies such anxious uneasiness. It starts off on a quick ring that sets off a fast-paced beat, building into urgent chaos with stinging riffs and playing out a frantic woozy frenzy. And just when it mellows out into a brief moment of jubilant clarity, danger strikes back with a guitar whaling return. If my train commute could have a soundtrack it would be this, because even the most beautiful of days are ruined with stressful delays and overflowing carts of bodies. We all have our ways of getting trapped with no way out. Listen below.
