Wisconsin-based band Disq shares the single, (With Respect To) Loyal Serfs,” from their new album Desperately Imagining Someplace Quiet, out October 7th on Saddle Creek. The follow-up to If Only and Cujo Kiddies,” “(With Respect To) Loyal Serfs” is scorching, ripping wide open with a wall of guitar and Shannon Connor’s robust vocals.

Disq is made up of lifelong friends guitarist Isaac deBroux-Slone and bassist Raina Bock, guitarists Logan Severson and Shannon Conor, and drummer Stu Manley. Severson and Conor split singing and songwriting duties with deBroux-Slone and Bock, leading to a stronger band, more daring and more defiant, ready to finish the job. Desperately Imagining Someplace Quiet was produced by Matt Schuessler, who rarely lets a verse or chorus go by without adding some new sonic sparkle, keeping the arrangements an ever-shifting kaleidoscope of textures and moods. If there is a record in 2022 which squeezes more ideas into 41 minutes, then that record could surely only be the unlistenable mess that Desperately Imagining Someplace Quiet avoids becoming so deftly.

Pushing play on Desperately Imagining Someplace Quiet, it is easy to imagine that it is the year 1998, and your cool older sister has returned from her freshman year at college only to hand you the sort of mind-altering mixtape out of which lifelong rock fanatics are born. Though, things being how they are in the world today, the idea of finding “someplace quiet” feels like an increasingly remote possibility, and the act of imagining such a place does, indeed, feel more and more desperate. With Desperately Imagining Someplace Quiet, Disq take a valiant stand against the temptation of complacency. As for that “someplace quiet?” It will have to wait… it’s about to get loud in here.
