"Mild High Club is the home for the musical output of Alexander Brettin, a jazz-schooled musician transplanted from the Midwest to Los Angeles. Recording with a Fostex 4-track cassette recorder, MacBook, 12-string electric guitar, PortaSound keyboard, bass, drum machine, software instruments 'and whatever was lying around,' Brettin began recording Timeline in 2012. In addition to the pure pop of singer-songwriter Todd Rundgren, sixties psych wields an obvious influence over Mild High Club’s music. Brettin strips away the opulence and over-the-top arrangements and oddball tomfoolery commonly associated with it in favor of phased melodies and heartfelt lyrics. For live performances, Brettin draws other members of the loose Mild High Club collective from all over the United States. 'The advantages to working alone are being selfish and taking all the time you want,' he explains, while 'the disadvantages are being selfish and taking all the time you want. When I wrote and recorded the bulk of Timeline, I just wanted to have a vinyl record. Two and a half years later, we've got the band and handfuls of other ‘club members’ around the country who occasionally get together for ‘club meetings’. The Mild High Club is just a vessel for our musical and comical curiosities.' Mild High Club recently toured with post-punk pioneers Wire and has shared the stage with the likes of Mac DeMarco, Ariel Pink and Mikal Cronin." - Circle Star Records
