Much Irma Vep feels like what "classic" music should feel like if it weren't so Classic. Each record, each song and each performance exists as an evolving drama. No Handshake Blues is out 13 January 2017 via Faux Discx and Comfortable On A Tightrope. Pre-order now.
4 extended jams (clocking-in at 32 minutes) of live-looped, motorik psychedelia. Heavy drum-machine repetition, droning keyboards, and extended guitar ragas. All played live (with vocals overdubbed later) by Soft Walls main man / Cold Pumas member Dan Reeves, direct to his beloved MT8X cassette tape machine.
Sweet Williams are one of Brighton’s finest guitar-based bands, and they’ve now clocked up a second full-length LP. Please Let Me Sleep On Your Tonight has Thomas House leading his crew into a full array of tightly-coiled songs, with plenty of blasted heft and sharp howl to go around. This is the good stuff.
