The Real Jobs - Droolers (LP)
This is an Apollon Records release.

This is the sound of some bad fun being had.

Bergen Norway’s The Real Jobs debut album Droolers is here.  Late night tales told on evil sounding synth, aggressive, hypnotic drums, guitar that’s more noise than melody and then of course the words and vocals that set the scene, make you doubt your own morals and nuke your comfort zone. Torch the house and ride to infinity (wtf?)!

Eirik Marinius Sandvik (Heatwaves, Jon Olav Nilsen & Nordsjoen, Lint) and Jonas Særsten (Heatwaves, Shaman Elephant, Atari) decided to make themselves a recording project where anything goes. The ugliest, the wildest. Whatever you feel like. Eirik invited long-time collaborator Bryn Bowen (The Shalfonts, Mountain Cloth) to guest vocal on a track and their first single This Playboy Signs It In Blood was cut in a single take. The song needed some guitar noise. William Mangerøy Jensen (Lint) did his take and the recording project morphed into a full on band.

The Real Jobs merge dark electronica and krautrock then somehow blend it through a kind of 90s/00s alternative melodic filter. Think Beak meets Lifter, Puller meets Jawbreaker. The name comes from the George Thorogood & The Destroyers song Get a Haircut (and get a real job).
