Listening to this new track from Vomitface, it really starts to make a lot of sense that Steve Albini got himself behind the knobs to produce it. Maybe it’s just me, but Jared Micah sounds like a young Kurt Cobain (Incesticide era)…before it was all about the wailing. The track itself has a heavier handed bit of guitar, but that allows for the softness of Micah’s voice to really create this diverse feeling that draws you deep into the song’s emotional pull. They’ll release their debut LP, Hooray for Me, on August 26th.

I’m definitely intrigued with the new singing that’s just joined up with Help Yourself Records, Vomitface. There’s something about their sound, borrowing from some of the exploration Sonic Youth used, whilst taking on this sludgy guitar tone. I think perhaps the one thing I miss from this new single is a sort of volume explosion, perhaps some erraticism, but it’s a solid tune, nonetheless. This song appears on Hooray for Me, which comes out on August 26th. It’s in the vein of almost-spastic art rock, should that be your thing.
