The recent Nucular Aminals album entitled Nucular Aminals [KLP233] has barely had time to cool from the multiple spins heating your living room turntable and there is already a new release available for an eager public who cannot get enough of their noisy pop rockin’ goodness. This is the latest volume in our International Pop Underground series of 7” 45 rpm phonograph records (always available as a digital downloadable!). “Nobody’s Man” [IPU137] is backed with two short bites of punked-out weirdness, “Kill Your Dogs” and “Garrison + Phillips / Garrison Phillips”. This music must be heard! Leave the screen door ajar and dance on the patio. The Pacific Northwest has bred another reason to turn it up and go ape.
Angelo Spencer and Karl Blau!
The new Angelo Spencer et les Hauts Sommits album World Garage [KLP235] has been taking the summer by storm. You hear it from the window of every passing car, bedroom windows across the neighborhood, the speakers at the roller rink, the blaster at the basketball court. It’s crazy-good! Did you know it was produced by Karl Blau? There is a new Karl Blau record out on K, too, Max [KLP227]. It feautes the music of Karl, all fluid and grooved out. Songs be bumpin’. A truly torch lit affair. Both Angelo Spencer and Karl Blau played at the Helsing Junction Sleep Over and it was torrid.
