Gramery Records is proud to announce our debut release and second full-length album from New Haven, Connecticut’s Estrogen Highs! “Friends and Relatives” clocks in at just over 38 minutes and encompasses a wide range of influences. By far the bands most ambitious and mature release to date, “Friends and Relatives” displays the bands best tracks and most interesting ideas. While their Dead Beat Records debut LP, “Tell It to Them,” showed mostly punk and garage influences, “Friends and Relatives” is chalk full of a wide range of influences; from The Dead C to Guided by Voices, to Kiwi-style pop, to The Wipers, to psychedelic drones and jams, the record cultivates a unique and original sound that is distinctly the bands own. These 14 tracks were recorded from December of 2009 until July of 2010, a time period in which the band did nothing but write, record, and experiment. The result is a finely tuned, well thought-out, cohesive album from start to finish. The hand made covers and labels perfectly accent the Do-It-Yourself attitude of the band and their homemade brand of recording.
