Generifus (jen-uh-riff-us) is the longstanding music project of Olympia, WA resident Spencer Sult and friends. Rearrangel is the newest full-length recording by the group, co-released by Missoula’s Anything Bagel record label and Portland’s Bud Tapes.

After a period of songwriting dormancy, Sult started putting new ideas together in the beginning of 2022, resulting in a few dozen demos written over the winter months. The album was recorded in June 2022 in Portland, OR with longtime friends and collaborators Zach Burba (Zacy’s, Dear Nora, Mega Bog) acting as producer and Vin Christopher (Oh, Rose, Ancient Pools) as engineer. Live band members Wilson Caicedo, Andrew Dorsett and Henry Wilson were joined by several Portland musicians to play on the tracks, which were recorded mostly live in the Trash Treasury studio. Fellow Olympian and west coast legend Lee Baggett also came in to play guitar and contribute vocals to the title track.

The 10 songs that make up Rearrangel are a mix of spiritual vision, road story, and wisdom lifted from bumper stickers. Stories told on the album range from vague and eerie Garcia/Hunter tales to sharper portrayals of Becker/Fagen style flawed heroes. Sult puts his own twist on these songs with a unique musical and lyrical perspective gained from a life spent in the Pacific Northwest.
