Songs of valves and analogue love rendered by fuzzed up guitars.

Simply stunning album and a Rough Trade Shops favourite. New Yorkers Mike Brandon, Luis Alfonso, Alex Q Amini and Zach Butler release their second album on the Daptones offshoot. The hard-touring foursomes second album was recorded at Daptone’s House Of Soul and produced by Wayne Gordon

Gnarly churning bass echoes through a reverbs drenched sound haunted by spooky synths. Brittle guitars flail in fast and furious riffs. All messed up vocals holla halloo over the top. This is music for fucked up dance parties where you wake up the next day in a pile of empty cans with a sore head and no idea what happened but a determination to start a band that only plays Louie Louie. And you know you’ve had the best time ever.
