Regular price £19.99 Sale

SUPER LIMITED EDITION YELLOW VINYL

Release Date: 8th December 2017

 

A super limited edition coloured vinyl re-press of only 300 of this gem from September! The debut album from the experimental post-punk/art/krautrock amalgamation of a band who dress in "shamanistic" costumes for their unique and bizarre live performances. Snapped Ankles have emerged from the woods clutching an album that feels simultaneously modern and ancient. This is what dance music will sounds like when computers finally fail us. Log synths bass guitar and sticks on taut animal skin coalesce to form fearsome primal rhythms. Fuzz guitars rubbing up against dirty rolling arpeggiated synthesisers to ignite wild white noise fires. Subjects veer from dystopian futures to railing against Swedish flat-pack furniture from the films of Jean-Luc Godard and Andrei Tarkovsky to throwaway YouTube comments. They remind us of a cross between the metronomic dance-punk of Holy Fuck and the mythological mystery of the secretive Swedish psych-rock band GOAT!
