In 2008, the Granite Countertops released a five-song EP, THE FULL DISCLOSURE PRINCIPLE, under their original name, The Blame. Now, the original five tracks have been remixed and remastered along with an additional five recordings from that same period of raw creativity, and we present them to you here as a full-length new/old album!
THE FULL DISCLOSURE PRINCIPLE REVISITED shows the first stirrings of the Granite Countertops’ DIY spirit. Lots of guitars, organs, and layered girl-boy voices, augmented by kitchen-sink electronics and seat-of-the-pants spontaneity.
Highlights include a bopping, anthemic cover of “Democracy” by Leonard Cohen, original indie-pop gems “Outside The Blue Room” and “Wagons And Boys”, a haunting version of the Paris Sisters’ girl-group classic “I Love How You Love Me”, the workplace psychodrama “Worker Bee”, and the sheer groovy weirdness of freshly unearthed tracks like “Director’s Chair”, “Resigned Shrug”, and “The Moving Finger”.
