HEY MANDIBLE GOES DEAF IN 2015

The Quaker Goes Deaf rate Hey Mandible's album The Arse #42 for their Top-50 Best of 2015 List! w00t!w00t!

#42:  Hey Mandible—The Arse   (Fort Lowell/Infintesmal)  New album from band out of Jacksonville, Florida—heavy guitar indie rock with psychedelic outer space noise blasts that mediate the volatile rock ‘n’ roll middle ground between power pop hooks and angry feedback/distorto riffs.  “The Arse” integrates noise and melody in a fluid, punch-you-out hug of addictively dark and challenging song structure, where distortion never overpowers, but always provides a muscular compliment.  These are songs that hit you hard with a punk-edged face-slap that has just the right amount of warmth & sting to call your back again.  500 copies on green marble vinyl, and the cover art by Laura Bearl is a trip. (The 50s housewife taking the smiling little broasted baby out of the oven has horns and furry, hooved legs.)   Similarities to bands like Dumb Numbers, Turn Me On Dead Man, Dinosaur Jr., Mission Of Burma, Black Level Embassy, Sonic Youth, Polvo, the Intelligence.  Hey Mandible play brilliantly angry, darkly accessible rock with an instinctual, gut-level roar of power that hangs on to the melodic groove for dear life.  Recommended.

TRACK OF THE DAY: BAND & THE BEAT "21"

Stereo Embers Magazine features Band & The Beat's debut single "21" as their Track Of The Day!
---
““21” is a darkly sparkling, driving and drifting dream-pop noir opus that is mesmerizing and mood-altering. A fast-ticking beat and Motorik bass-like line runs through most of the track, creating a propulsive, nocturnal ambience. Globular synth notes are dropped on top, along with distortion-spangled synth notes and Tracy’s slightly disembodied vocals that float at the forefront of the instruments.” ~ Jen Dan, Stereo Embers
