We’re late to it, but we’re loving this track, Silk Spirit, from Leeds three-piece Drahla.

It comes from their debut EP Third Article and blends wiry post-punk with splash of unpredictable art rock, and is anchored by a woozy, nagging riff that is a sonic delight.

Stream it below and order the EP via Bandcamp here.

  2. No Age – Drippy
  3. Alela Diane – Émigré’
  4. Calexico – Voices In The Field

We’ve been remiss in sharing details of Wooden Wand’s Toth’s Law recordings. Volume 1 came out back in June, which we did cover, but Volumes 2 and 3 have followed since then.

They are collections of outtakes, demos and songs that never, for one reason or another, made it onto his other recording output. Nevertheless the collection contains songs that frankly, other singer-songwriters would be giving their right arms for, or at least looking to do a deal similar to that of Robert Johnson’s mythical crossroads.

Here are a couple of top notch tasters from them with JJT’s description. Head over to Bandcamp to purchase the albums.

Drug Sniffing Dogs is about conflicts of interest and cognitive dissonance. I was probably also thinking about Fugazi’s Great Cop.

It’s A Lie – a song about the toxic mythology of rock and roll, and a condemnation of the rock demigod’s sense of entitlement.

 

 

Since discovering Country Sleaze about a year after everyone else, we’ve eagerly been catching up with all things Goat Girl. Taking their name from a classic Bill Hicks sketch meant they would be pretty much a shoo-in for us here at MM.

Out on 7″ in December, their latest single, Cracker Drool is another twangy, hypnotic excursion into the indie underworld.

Matching the song perfectly, watch the monochrome road trip video as it gradually morphs from a dash of unease and suspense to a full on noirish nightmare.
