I stumbled upon this great track from Electricity in Our Homes, and I really wanted to share it with everyone. At first, I started to think of their album, Dear Shareholder, as a bit of constructionist pop-art, but the more I listen the more I can’t help but compare them to the early work of our dear friends in Colourmusic. It combines odd time structures and off-kilter melodies/harmonies; somehow, it all fits nicely together giving you a nice groovy listen that’ll keep your toes tapping throughout the day. You’re definitely going to want to give the following number some repeated spins today!
Our good friend Kevin is legit. Not only does he run What’s Your Rupture and Krazy Punx, but he always manages to send me these great tracks when I’m feeling like a sad bastard. That’s not at all what he’s got on his plate when he releases a new 7″ titled Mother Knows Best by UK punks Throwing Up. Immediately it’s brash and abrasive, banging away furiously at your ears. All of a sudden, the vocals kick in, and you’re hooked on the female vocals, giving it a bit of jubilance along with lo-fi ferocity. Turn it up and let it blast…then grab it from What’s Your Rupture on November 28th.

One of the places I frequently troll for new music tipped me off to this great little London act, Fanzine, They also alluded to a possible signing with Fat Possum, which wouldn’t seem out of line after they picked up Yuck last year. The group are self-releasing their Low EP, and there’s definite gems for you to enjoy. Whether you want a slow-pace pop ditty or a nice upbeat stomper, you can find it on this short EP. One things for sure, the band has the hooks, seemingly, to write a great track, so I’m sure we’ll hear more from them in the future.
