Meat Wave

We are eagerly anticipating Chicago trio Meat Wave’s forthcoming album The Incessant out on 17th February on Big Scary Monsters here in the UK and EU, and via Side One Dummy in the States.

We posted the title track  recently and Incessant was brilliant, but the rollicking, self-referential Bad Man, might be even better – one of the most cathartic, bile-ridden songs in a catalogue littered with them.

Listen below, pre-order the album here, and check out their upcoming UK tour dates too.

best of the weekAnother seven days have come and gone, although these felt infinitely more dangerous than any others. Hats off to Ewan McGregor at least this week!

If nothing else it means new songs from those horrified by the new leader of the free world – so to kick us off we have offerings from Suuns, Meat Wave, Father John Misty and an update on a protest song classic from Billy Bragg. Elsewhere a raw articulation of grief from Mount Eerie, and some sparkling new releases from none others than Real Estate’s Byrds-ian jangle, Promised Land Sound’s space-country, FEWS’ post-punk motorik squall, some sunny indie from Tim Darcy (of Ought), garage-grunge from Meatbodies, a brilliant slab of shoegazey beach-punk from Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and to round it all off a new song from power-pop-punks White Reaper.

Twelve songs – a perfect playlist to kick off the weekend.

Enjoy

  1. Suuns – Native Tongue
  2. Billy Bragg – The Times They Are A-Changing Back
  3. Meat Wave – Dogs At Night

Meat Wave have released a new video from their forthcoming new album, Delusion Moon (out Sept 18th on SideOneDummy).

It’s for the jarring, discordant Cosmic Zoo, and it follows a decidedly punk day-in-the-life style format for the Chicagoan trio…

Watch it here.

Chicago’s Meat Wave have unveiled a brand new track, Erased, their first new material since January’s excellent Brother EP.

Released on Brace Yourself Records, Erased bristles with spiky, mutant chord sequences, flaming guitars and vocals that stay just about on the good side of snot-nosed.

Take it on below.

Forget the eggs and celebrate Easter with a selection box of musical videos that are all pre-screened to ensure the equivalent of the orange creme hasn’t sneaked through…instead take your pick from folk, indie, psychedelia, punk, Americana….
