Ears Wide Open: Supermercat

Here’s a case of two artists truly meeting in the middle.

Supermercat is a collaboration between two L.A.-based artists, Alexa Carrasco and Mathew McNamara. Earlier this year, Carrasco released her debut album under the name Lexi Whatever, “If You Call the Woman the Woman Comes,” a collection of melancholy, mostly piano-driven pop. Also earlier this year, the Cleveland-reared McNamara released his second album of blistering punk rock under the name Maadwest, “Outsider.”

The Supermercat EP is aptly titled “Heat” and was released Nov. 13. It offers five songs of prickly yet melodic indie-rock, with Carrasco sounding alternately detached and high-strung and McNamara giving her lyrical anxieties a noisy backdrop. “I’m higher than the moon tonight / I’m searchin’ for a soul to fight / I think I found one in you / I swear I’m higher than the …,” Carrasco deadpans on “Stranger Than Normal.” As collisions of musical orbits go, Supermercat’s is pretty fortuitous.
