In a recent interview, the band I Am Sparticus said their songs are constantly evolving, even from one live performance to the next.
âThe way we play, we canât duplicate (a song) every single time,â said Tyler Walker (guitar/vocals). âA lot of it is noise-driven, with a lot of feedback and weird distortion.â
Walker said itâs one of several reasons why the band spent six months recording the nine songs on their self-titled album. The album, with was completed in August, was recorded at Slack Studios and produced by Brian Bourque.
Walker said he and drummer Matt Daigle created I Am Sparticus in 2004. He said first they played with several local musicians.
When asked about the name, Daigle said, it comes from a line in the 1996 movie âThat Thing You Do!â
âIt was something the drummer would say in reference to how the band god famous,â he said.â We misspelled (Sparticus) on purpose.â
Walker said the lineup didnât âsolidifyâ until Jenny Canaday (bass/vocals) and Porter Thomas (guitar/vocals) joined in 2006. âI started teaching (Canaday) how to play bass, and Porter has played in a bunch of different local bands,â Walker said.
Thomas said he made a âuniqueâ turn to music after undergoing surgery to remove several tumors in his left ear when he was 14. âIt made me completely deaf in that ear, and I had to stop skateboarding because if I fell, it would mess up my ear,â he said. âSo I picked up music instead.â
Since then, Walker said, the band has been writing songs influenced by bands like Weezer, Sonic Youth and the Pixies.
"It sounds like heavily-distorted pop music,â He said
At first listen, the Weezer comparison is most noticeable on songs like âCode Greenjeansâ and Sit, Laika. Stay.â Thomasâ distorted guitar solos on âThe Humâ and âUltraviolenceâ are comparable to bands like Sonic Youth and My Bloody Valentine.
Walker said each song is filled with contributions from all four members. Nearly every member sings on the album, and Canaday sings lead on âSatellite Heartâ and âUntitled.â
âIt always starts out with one of us having an idea, and everyone adds their own interpretation over that,â he said.
