Vertical Scratchers Live At The Wilderness Bureau

By Raul Zahir De Leon

Merge Records artists Vertical Scratchers are somewhat new on the scene, but their members have been at it for some time: The California-based duo comprises John Schmersal–who spent time in Brainiac, Enon, Crooks on Tape and Caribou—and Christian Beaulieu of Triclops! and Anywhere.

Vertical Scratchers’ songs are punk-quick shots of infectious pop goodness, and we were excited to host them at the Wilderness Bureau. Check out this quick sampling of the band as they perform “Turn Me Out” and “These Plains” from their debut album, “Daughter of Everything.”
