Over the course of the few years they’ve been together, Brooklyn duo Washer have become a dependable source of smart songwriting and sharp hooks. At the very beginning of last year, they put out their debut album, Here Comes Washer, and they’re following it up in the fall with a new full-length, All Aboard, which finds them just as nervy and wresting but a little bit more self-assured. Lead single “Your Guess Is As Bad As Mine” is grounded by Kieran McShane’s drumming and Mike Quigley’s pinched vocals as he sings about feeling defeated but refusing to retreat: “I won’t back down/ Take a look around/ I hold my ear to the ground,” he sings. It’s simple but effective, like most of Washer’s songs, and you can listen to it and get all the album details below.
