Guster Debuts Top 5 On Top Rock, Current Alternative & Indie Albums Charts

Guster's seventh studio album, Evermotion debuted this week at #1 on the Independent Record Label Current Albums chart, #2 on the Current Alternative Albums chart and #3 on the Top Rock Albums chart. The quartet released the album independently for the first time since their debut, as a joint release with Nettwerk and their own label, Ocho Mule. Evermotion, produced by The Shins' keyboardist and The Black Keys' touring bassist Richard Swift, offers up Guster's most experimental instrumentation and layered arrangements to date with The Wall Street Journal praising its "synthesized ambience, clever percussion, [and] unexpected addenda" and AllMusic saying the band "discovers electricity" on the 11 songs.
