Hailing from Haverhill, MA, Zero Disorder is the bedroom pop project of Joe Bastian. His album Swim was recorded in his bedroom during the cold months of January through March, and was released in April through Public Alley Records. The release puts Bastian’s songwriting abilities on display with interesting instrumentation and lyricism that wastes no time getting to the point. Similar to lo-fi contemporaries Alex G and Elvis Depressedly, Bastian’s vocals are moody, but remain upbeat when - in his songs - he asks movie stars if they feel lonely or sings about a morning cup of coffee. The tracks are dominated by Joe’s guitar and drumming, but unique background noises make subtle appearances throughout the record, like on “Not Myself”. - John Honan
