Factory Floor. Minimal. Industrial. Cold wave. Whatever, they're fucking good. The 10" 'Lying / A Wooden Box" came out in May, they just released two remix versions of this too. Tour dates on myspace means get down and see them. I saw them at Rough Trade a few weeks back and was left with little hearing. You'll be like a moth against a light bulb.
Ace news... the wonderful Women are putting out a new album 'Public Strain' on August 23rd on Jagjaguwar. I was pretty much obsessed with their self titled album last year. Experimental, eclectic, shoe gazey, and beautifully produced by Chad Vangaalen. They've announced UK and European tour dates for August and beyond. Pick up tix quick, they'll sell out double fast. They've put up a free download of 'Eyesore' as a pre-treat. Preorders start on July 27th and come with a free 7". About time.
I'm pretty much over the garage scene right now, but I've been listening to Ty Segall's latest album 'Melted'. It's very good. Catchy slaggy fuzzy riffs and lazily drawled lyrics. It's more of a pop version of Thee Oh Sees, with some Supergrass thrown in. I really like the down tempo tracks when they feel like his right arms going to drop off from playing the guitar to slowly. All the songs a good. A rare treat. San Fran can.
It's set to be a belter this weekend. I recommend the following to cool your ears down:
El Guincho Finally the lovely man from Barcelona is following up his album Antillas with a somewhat more relaxed release called 'Piratas de Sudamérica'. Set to be buyable from July 12th on Young Turks. Love the single being put out called 'Hindou'. The EP is a a mix of lost and loved songs from South America and you can hear them all here...
Monster Rally I read about Monster Rally and had to check out their series of dreamy, fifties exotica hawaiian style sample heavy songs. Don't know anything about them, other that the fact you can download the self-titled EP from bandcamp. Very generous. Proper lovely.
Get ya cobs and fill 'em with some Prize Pets. My fellow Midlanders from Nottingham are a meaty meal. I saw 'em about a month ago at an in-store gig at Beyond Retro and was well into their set. Rockabilly with more guts. They just had a 7" out a couple of weeks back on Sex Is Disgusting with the track below on it. It's worth the purchase. Get down to see them live too.
