Here is a second taste from the Fat White Family’s upcoming album Serfs Up!

Tastes Good With The Money is built on the back of a scuzzy slow burn of a glam rock riff, absurd lyrics that drop with sordid innuendo and a vocal cameo from Baxter Dury. Throw in a surreal Monty Python inspired video and you’ve got all the ingredients for another irresistible, sleaze ridden classic.

Enjoy.

New From Ausmuteants

Ausmuteants will return with a new album The World In Handcuffs via Anti Fade Records on the 26th April.

Typically weird, the record features the same ten songs on each side, just in a different order and with the A Side including skits by guitarist Shaun Connor.

The record is a concept album of sorts, one that explores a piss-take look on life from the perspective of a police officer. However, beneath all the silliness, there are some pretty sharp and provocative observations on the systematic abuse of power and on the ugly, corrupt side of law enforcement.

Check out the 97 seconds of Forever Cops, which is equal parts pulverising, no holds barred hardcore and still completely bonkers.

Daft punk indeed… (sorry). Stream it below. Order the album here.

 

Hailing from Gdansk in Poland, Trupa Trupa are a new addition to the Sub Pop label and it is easy to see why on the strength of the woozily menacing Dream About.

Theirs is a world teeming with nihilistic considerations, slyly dark humour, and survivalist self-assurances. The oft repeated “I dream about no one, no way, no one / I’ve got nothing to hide, I will just disappear” creates a fiercely hypnotic mantra that is impossible to resist.

Stream it here. You can check out their back catalogue on Bandcamp here and a new album will be out on Sub Pop later in the year.

 

  1. King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard – Fishing For Fishies
  2. The Head And The Heart – Missed Connection
  3. Josefin Öhrn + The Liberation – Feel The Sun
  4. The UV Club – Mr Blame
  5. Lucille Furs – Paint Euphrosyne Blue
  6. Frankie Cosmos – Dancing
  7. Los Wilds – Muñequita de Trapo
  8. Grim Streaker – Today New York

Emerging from a five year silence and guided by warped guitar tones, menacing drums, and thundering bass, the new sound that Chicago post-punk foursome Walking Bicycles present on their new release Chooch is louder than anything they’ve recorded before.

With echoes of Siouxsie & The Banshees doom laden gothica, take a listen to Fat Cat, and latest single, the fearsome ESP below.

Order the album here.

 

 

Weaving between shimmering synth pop and the infectious grooves of 70’s Berlin, W.H. Lung will release their debut album Incidental Music on the 5th April via Melodic

We’ve got the second single from the record for you. The bulk of Second Death Of My Face was developed on the piano of Manchester’s Central Library, and it is a five and half minute epic, with cathartic lyrics and soaring crescendos – probably their most anthemic release so far…

Stream it here.

 

Catch them live:

Sat 11 May – Liverpool, The Shipping Forecast
Sun 12 May – Leeds – Gold Sounds Festival
Mon 13 May – Glasgow, The Garage (Attic Bar)
Tue 14 May – Nottingham, The Bodega
Wed 15 May -Brighton, Green Store Door
Thu 16 May – Bristol, The Louisiana
Fri 17 May – Southampton, Heartbreakers
Sat 18 May – London, Oslo (Hackney)
Sat 25th May – Totnes, Sea Change Festival
Fri 14th June – Manchester, Band On The Wall (With Working Men’s Club)

 

Droneflower is the new collaboration between MM regular Marissa Nadler and Stephen Brodsky (of Mutoid Man, Cave In). It will be released by Sacred Bones on the 26th April.

As might be imagined, it is a sprawling and expansive exercise in contrasts – the sound of the war between the brutal and the ethereal, the depths of darkness and piercing light, and the real and imagined.

The ten tracks include eight originals and two covers – the epic Guns n’ Roses power ballad Estranged, and Morphine’s beguiling In Spite of Me.

For now though we have For The Sun for your listening pleasure.  You can pre-order the album via Bandcamp here.

 

Having made our Best Of lists for last year with the brilliant Twelve Divisions Of The Day, Leeds based Drahla have announced the release of Useless Coordinates, a debut ten track album that will see a release via Captured Tracks on the 3rd May.

Stimulus for Living is the queasily brilliant first taste from the record. All their wiry, naggingly insistent post-punk credentials are firmly in place for a writhing, sinuous track that is equal parts hypnotic and unsettling.

Bodes well for the full album – listen below.

 

Psych-stalwarts Brian Jonestown Massacre will release their 18th full-length album on Anton Newcombe’s own A Recordings label on the 15th March. The self-titled nine track record comes just seven months after their last one.

This is Tombes Oubliées from it. Rather tasty…
