Stef Chura, from Detroit, sings fuzzed-out, ’90s-style indie rock in a very cool deadpan. She recorded her full-length debut Messes with Fred Thomas, and with him, she shares a certain heartfelt slapdash aesthetic. In Messes, you can hear the idea that DIY rock music can be as warm and friendly and melodic as any other kind of music. We’ve already posted the early songs “You” and “Spotted Gold.” And right now, you can stream the entire album below, via Noisey.
Messes is out 1/27 on Urinal Cake Records.
