Mastering Primetime “Going Places” on La Vida Es Un Mus.

“Primetime return with their second EP ‘Going Places’ on La Vida Es un Mus. A four track EP of juvenile Joie de vivre. Each of the four tracks ooze sass, nonchalance and that special ingredient – songs that demand repeat listens. Standout track is ‘Pervert’ which is one minute and 56 seconds of post punk perfection which would happily sit on Rough Trade’s seminal 1980 compilation ‘Wanna Buy a Bridge’ in between Kleenex, Swell Maps and The Raincoats. You will not find something as instant and essential in 2016.'”

Primetime

Mastering Primetime for La Vida Es Un Mus Records.

“Self-proclaimed ‘chaotic neurotics’, Primetime release their debut four track EP on La Vida Es Un Mus. These four ladies deal in note perfect post punk which harks back to the glory years of 1979 to 1982. ‘Tied Down’ is the calling card and is a scratchy mix of Kleenex and Delta 5 with an instant hook. The sound is raw and minimal yet inventive. You can’t help but fall in love with this band after just one listen.”

Go ahead do yourself a favour and buy it.

 

Frau

Mastering Frau “Punk is My Boyfriend” EP on Static Shock Records.

“Static Shock Records gets the honour of releasing the debut three track 7″ from London feminist punks Frau who feature members of Woolf and Good Throb. They released the much loved 8 track 10 minute demo on Tuff Enuff Records in late 2013 (which has now been reissued on LP by Dead Beat Records) and now return with three more short blasts of discordant and furious noise. ‘Punk Is My Boyfriend’ is a dirty and scratchy cut with pounding drums and an insistent guitar hook. It comes over like a mix of Pre ‘Cut’ Slits, Huggy Bear and Kleenex. ‘Snakeskin’ is possibly the only song in the world that could have appeared on both Crass’ ‘Bullshit Detector’ and any Kill Rock Stars compilation. Final track ‘Orca’ sounds like it could fall apart at any moment and just about makes the one minute mark. The guitars grind over a busy bass, heavy yet loose drums and explosive vocals. DIY has never sounded so good. Limited to 400 copies with hand stamped sleeves.”

 

Static Me

Mastering Static Me‘s forthcoming LP on Adagio 830.

“Static Me hailing from Cologne, Germany and feat. various members from various bands. Static play dark female fronted post punk that some remind me as a mix between, HANS-A-PLAST meets KLEENEX meets X MAL DEUTSCHLAND. A reminiscent sound w/ great catchy vocals.”
