Format: 7″ black vinyl

Side A: a glorified gluttony of wow & fluttery instrumentation, topped by lazy lo-fi vocals. A weirdly discordant indie pop pleasure palace drowning in an oddity of musicality. Toe-tapping rhythm hidden beneath strangely swirly sussurations of sound.

Side B: Tingly tangly twangly guitar slathered in reverberant 90s style vocals. A wide, laconic detuned eton mess of a track. Sharp and sweet detuned riffs wrestle against dreamy indie party shuffling vibes.

Score: 8/10

Vinyl Thought: a whole heap of swirly whirly music that grabs your attention then slaps your ears up and down

What It Feels Like – Bruising

April 13, 2017
fromthelisteningnook

Format: light pink 7″ vinyl

It’s back to early 90s angst with grungy bass underlying a soft female vocal and layered with steely guitar. Reminiscent of Weezer and Eels but in no bad way. Short sweet and full of life, Brusing have created a track that wouldn’t​ feel out of place on the Empire Records soundtrack or any of Kevin Smith’s early films.

Score: 9/10

Thought: time to dig out the old droopy cardigan and floppy hair wig and watch some Teachers on DVD
