Both Nu Sensae and Useless Eaters have had a good year, especially in my musical ears, so I’m pleased to present you with one of the tunes from their split 7″, which comes to you via Volcom Entertainment’s Vinyl Club. It’s a limited pressing, and I suggest you get your hands on this rarity. The tune I wanted to highlight is the Useless Eaters side of the release, which shows a more sprawling version of the band, rather than their precision punk rock. It’s coated in reverb, giving the listener a bit of distance between the heavy jam and the vocals. Give it a good listen.
What? You thought I was joking? Here’s more rock n’ roll, this time from Vancouver’s Nu Sensae. In just a few weeks the group will be releasing their new record, Sundowning, on August 7th via Suicide Squeeze. This track opens with Andrea Lukic’s rough snarl, but while it hits hard immediately, it also has the ability to draw back a little bit. You’ll find a smoother vocal during the chorus, followed by a gut busting guitar solo. I love the brash mentality here, putting a little (or a lot) of balls into the formulaic girl-fronted garage rock of the day.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/NuSensae_100Shades.mp3]
