Warehouse debuts with 'Mental Faculty'


Sometime between late Monday night and early Tuesday morning Warehouse let loose a brand new number, titled "Mental Faculty." Not only is it the first single from the group's forthcoming debut LP, Tesseract, it's Warehouse's proper introduction to the world. Beyond the various shows the group has played over the last two years, and an awkward Live at WREK session, "Mental Faculty" stamps in time the riffs and rolling melodies that guitarists Ben Jackson and Alex Bailey have been developing together since the summer of 2012. Allowing the song to grow naturally over such a long period of time has yielded a first glimpse at the barreling, refreshingly melodic, and experimental sound that Warehouse holds in store.

Still, Jackson, Bailey, singer Elaine Edenfield, bass player Josh Hughes (TV Dinner), and drummer Doug Bleichner's collective songwriting speaks to the broader aspects of a narrative by honing in on the tension and ambiance that builds between Edenfields sweet and snarling roar and a palette of color-toned rhythms. "What we've come to appreciate about our process is that when Alex and I are working on a song, there's a pursuit of a feeling, but not one that we would care to define," Jackson says. "We sustain that until we have completed it. Elaine gives the songs a voice of her own, and we're in love with it," he adds. "We try not to put too much of our own narrative into it so she can really work with it."

Warehouse opens for Dan Deacon at the Drunken Unicorn on Tues., April 22. $10. 8:30 p.m.
