The Band In Heaven

This 4-track ep is awash with a thick velvet drone, throbbing electronics and a punk-spiked trash aesthetic. They've obviously played their Mary Chain records a few times, but they've got enough sonic sass to be blazing their own trail. It even had me reaching for The Warlocks' Rise and Fall album for the first time in a decade. I could always hear something of The Blue Orchids' dark psychedelia in The Warlocks, and I can hear it in The Band In Heaven, too.

It's difficult to imagine where they'll go next, but that's not my job. It'll be fun finding out. Sure, they could crash and burn, but even if they did then this debut record on Hozac would be a good-looking corpse.
