The Pharmacy

Washington state’s Scottie Yoder has been creating melodic garage rock for ten years now with friend and trusted collaborator Brendhan Bowers. Classically trained pianist Stefan Rubicz joined the duo in 2007 and The Pharmacy became a threesome.

Since then the trio’s amazing work ethic has produced three albums and a handful of 7″ singles with tours all across North America and Europe with acts such as Japanther, Vivian Girls, and Kimya Dawson.

They spent 2009 living in New Orleans where they recorded the LP Weekend, creating the most consistent record the band has ever made, capturing a magical mid-‘60s vibe that yours truly believed had been lost forever. This was followed by three US and two European tours and a SXSW session with Daytrotter, before returning to Seattle with a wealth of new material.

The A side of the new Dig Your Grave EP contains two songs recorded in Seattle at Jack Endino’s Soundhouse Studio. Yoder was even able to use the same guitar amp from Nirvana’s Bleach LP for the solo in “Pines.”

The B-side contains a demo recorded in the barracks on Governor’s Island and an acoustic track from their time in New Orleans. It’s a diverse and varied document offering a glimpse into their highly anticipated next album, Stoned & Alone, due out later this year on Park The Van Records.
