Perth (Australia) rockers Psychedelic Porn Crumpets have shared somewhat bonkers visuals for new single Social Candy.
Graduating from the same thriving scene as Tame Impala and King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard, the Australian outfit announced their arrival in the UK earlier this summer with Cornflake, receiving airplay on Aural Delights 295
Having proven their stripes as a frenetic live act in their homeland with impressive national tours alongside Royal Blood and Nothing But Thieves, the band will be bringing their eclectic style to a wider audience on their debut UK/European tour next month – several dates already sold out, including their 13th September appearance at Gullivers in Manchester, such is the hype surrounding the quartet.
Social Candy’s swirling guitars, heavy percussion and hypnotic vocals are sure to make it a favourite amongst their growing fanbase, with frontman Jack McEwan discussing their video in further detail:
“The world is weird. Who’s to know if your weird is the same as mine? “Gotta think outside the box mannnnnnn” in your best McConaughey voice. We wanted to emulate the songs care free, spangled train wreck vibe and then Mighty Boosh came to mind. So we built our own Dioramas to the best of our Year 7 craft abilities, called up our mate Jake who owns a camera and inhaled a shit load of paint, swallowed a bunch of sparkles and munched hard on Perth’s finest beach sand. The results are four cookers making the finest botch-home-job-video you’ll ever see. Spike Jonze rates it”.
Psychedelic Porn Crumpets’ Social Candy is out now via What Reality? Records and available on all digital platforms. You will be able to hear it on Aural Delights 301 on September 6th.
Following of their split release with Martyrdöd, Baltimore, Maryland-based crust/metal band Neolithic release their Cult Of Ignorance EP through Deep Six Records on March 16th.
The band draws much of their influence from d-beat hardcore and death metal, aiming to create their own sound of aggressive down-tuned pitch-black death/crust. The band’s lyrics touch on subjects of corruption, war, and death. The new band was only formed less than a year ago, in the Spring of 2017, by five Baltimore-area scene veterans, with vocalist Evan Harting (Putrisect), bassist Matt Mutolo (Putrisect), drummer Jon John Michaud (ex-Swarm Of The Lotus), and guitarists Mitchell Roemer (ex-Pulling Teeth, ex-Old Lines) and Dustin Thornton (ex-Ruiner). Influences from the early Earache catalogue artists like Bolt Thrower, Napalm Death, and Brutal Truth are in play brought together with a more modern, brutal, crusty groove.
The 7″ EP comprises three new tracks of the band’s brutalizing, bottom-heavy death riffage. Surging atop pillaging hardcore/punk beats, the volatile vocal attack ranging from scathing to guttural through the tracks “Blinded,” “Cult Of Ignorance,” and “Rapacity.” The EP was recorded by Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations and mastered by Brad Boatright at AudioSiege.
Airplay will be forthcoming via Aural Delights on March 15th.
Lumer are from Hull and comprise Alex Evans (bass/vocals), Benjamin Jackson (Guitar), Jacob Wardle (drums) and Thom Foster (synth/guitar). They have a slacker post-punk vibe which has a New York Dolls feel. Here’s the new single out on Warren Records. Check them out on Facebook.
