MM Shorts 948: Rips

Posted: May 22, 2017 in Alternative, Garage, Indie, Music, Post Punk, Rock

Brooklyn based Rips’ songs may channel late ’70s New York City bands like Television and The Feelies, but they smartly propel these references into something new and contemporary. Their self-titled debut, produced by Austin Brown of Parquet Courts, is eleven tracks of buzzing guitar riffs driven by a charged rhythm section.

Check out the chugging fizz of new single Delay and the previously shared, slightly more reflective Malibu Entropy below. The album is out on the 16th June via Faux Disc.

Newcastle’s EAT FAST will release their second EP, Immortal Kombat, on 19 May via Brighton indie Cannibal Hymns.

The title track from the record is out today and we’re liking it a lot. A rasping gut-punch of battering riffs and typically dagger-like lyricism. The track weighs up the pros and cons of lead singer Adam Pearson finding happiness in solitude – before being “chinned in a pub by an observer’s possessive boyfriend.

Sounds fun. Have a listen.



With their frenetic, snotty, psych-surf rock ‘n’ roll sound in the vein of Ty Segall or The Cramps, Brighton’s Strange Cages have made big strides in their short existence.

We featured them back in 2015, and now the trio are now set to release a new 6-track EP The Cracks on Vallence Records this June. First track to surface is Leader Of A Cult combining elements of krautrock and post-punk with a nicely paranoid, schizophrenic vocal.

Watch the video below.

Piss Test are a brilliantly named punk threesome formed in Portland, Oregon in 2012.

LPII is (unsurprisingly) their second album, and consists of eleven tracks of snotty, sneering, garage-punk crammed into 19 minutes and 22 seconds. The shortest at 57 seconds, the longest a second over two minutes.

Listen to ferocious album opener Marianne and ferocious album closer Whole Lot Of Whole Lotta Rosie.

You’ll soon get the idea… buy from Bandcamp here.



London quintet Chemtrails have shared the third and final single from their upcoming second EP Headless Pin Up Girl. 

Forever Watching The Skies is a gem of hazy, hypnotic indie-psych that adds a contemporary twist to the halcyon days of bands like The Jesus & Mary Chain and Primal Scream.

Listen below and buy the EP via Bandcamp here.
