Limited vinyl LP pressing. 2018 release. Everyone is under the thumb of something: anxiety, toxic relationships, self-bullying, a miserable job, the list goes on. Life Upside Down is an album about turning life right side up. It's about getting free from the worst enemy of all: thyself. Brett Newski has certainly kicked his own ass over the past six years, touring infinitely (mostly alone) and wandering down the rabbit hole of anxiety, depression, and wallowing self-doubt. All of these negatives have blossomed into positive creative energy on this album. Produced by Hutch Harris of SubPop legends The Thermals and engineered by Beau Sorenson (Death Cab for Cutie, Superchunk, Bob Mould), Life Upside Down is a beautiful catharsis to a happier brain and sense of belonging. If you frequently find yourself stuck in your own head traffic, this record might help get you free. Growing up on Pixies, Cake, Beck, Weezer, and Violent Femmes (who Newski has toured with on several occasions), Life Upside Down channels a raw '90s sound that brings you back to an era where guitars were king and MacBooks didn't count as a live instrument.
