Pissed Jeans Remaster Shallow

Pissed Jeans to Reissue Shallow

For the first time in years, Pissed Jeans’ debut long player Shallow is getting reissued on vinyl, and it’s also been completely remastered. Out on 7th October via SubPop, it now includes a bonus 7” reproduction of their first single included in the LP sleeve (a download code for those songs is included in the CD version). Pre-order here.

What better excuse then to post the wonderfully simple, unrelenting riff of Boring Girls, which sounds something akin to the Beastie Boys and the Butthole Surfers trapped in the cellar of a crumbling 50s insane asylum trying to write a love song.

And failing. Brilliantly.

Another From Autobahn

We’ve previously posted about Autobahn’s 12″ EP 2, which was officially released today via Tough Love Records.

To celebrate the band are streaming another new track, this is Pale Skin, and it is our favourite yet: a nervy, propulsive, feral excursion into krautrock inspired punk.

Have a listen.
