The Coathangers’ excellent new album Nosebleed Weekend has been getting regular spins here at MM. The record kicks off with Perfume, a song that marries sultry pop vocals with toothy guitar riffs and is the subject of a brand new video from the band.

Watch it below.



Squeeki Tiki is the latest single taken from The Coathangers upcoming album Nosebleed Weekend, which is out on the 15th April.

It is another perfect example of their infectious, fizzing, garage-inspired punk. A song that buzzes and careers all over the place like a kid waving a piece of barbed wire in a kindergarten!



The Coathangers who release their fifth LP, Nosebleed Weekend, on 15th April via Suicide Squeeze Records have shared the excellent title track and also announced a one-off London show at the Moth Club on the 5th May before heading off on a string of European dates.

Stream it here.

We have already given you Freedom Fries, the Black Lips side of their forthcoming split single with The Coathangers.

Now we have Watch Your Back, the buzzing, indignant anthem that makes up the other side from the aforementioned Coathangers.

Marvellous stuff – stream it below.

Coathangers & These Arms Are Snakes Split 7"These Arms Are Snakes released their first song in five years since the band’s abrupt dissolution which ended their seven-year run.

Their bleary and blighted artcore version of Lost Sounds’ Energy Drink And The Long Walk Home was mastered and brought back to life this year as the B side on a split 7″ with ex tour and label mates, The Coathangers who in turn offer their jagged, garage rock take on The Gun Club’s classic tune, Sex Beat.

It is out today. Order here.



Four lovely new videos for you to enjoy from The Coathangers, The Lone Bellow, Los Angeles Police Department and the minimally monikered S.






Videos of the Day

Spoiling you with five excellent videos this morning. I don’t know where you are, but we’ve got yet another day of dank, dreary, drizzly rain and I need something to brighten up my Friday.

So, contrast and compare scrappy indie jangle from Such Hounds, gentle intricate harmonies from The Sea The Sea, tough, catchy garage from The Coathangers, fevered, intense pop from Rare Monks, and the classic country-punk rock’n’roll of Reverend Horton Heat.
