HOT SAUCE PONY »
Debut album widens the palate of aural exotica even further, all aided and abetted by the unmistakable sonic hallmarks of Steve Albini (Pixies, Nirvana, PJ Harvey), who recorded and engineered the whole thing at his now world-famous Electrical Audio studios in Chicago. Released by Brixton Hillbilly back in January.

Reference points are healthily myriad with reviewers pointing to the Lemmy-like clunk of Stephen Gilchrist's bass, the parallels between Anna Dodridge's metronomic rhythms and the finest moments of Can and Neu! The feedback-soaked guitar of Ross Davies, routed through a maze of effects pedals, would be equally at home on a classic Sub Pop or 4AD release, or the more rebellious end of the math rock spectrum. Caroline Gilchrist's vocals, meanwhile, are invariably delivered straight from the heart but always with an air of siren-like mystery and shapeshifting intensity that keeps you on a knife edge throughout.

Having cut their teeth on the same South London gig circuit that honed the skills of Shame, Goat Girl, Warmduscher and Black Midi, they've become a must see live act and the album captures and bottles that white hot excitement perfectly. ‘Crusher’, ‘Crumble’and ‘Doom Lord’ mercilessly toy with the listener’s emotions, switching from intimate vulnerability to riff heavy rampage without warning. From the lilting, almost folky melancholy of ‘Christmas in Prison’, to the jabbing sassiness of ‘Ho’ or the seas of sprawling distortion on ‘My Pet Hate In 6/8’ and ‘Louder’, this album has it all.

"Mudhoney with a whiff of Young Marble Giants"


Starsha Lee »
Badass rock n Roll maniac from Portugal whose vocal prowess approximates Yoko Ono, Babymetal and some psych ward denizens.

On their debut album 'Post-god Metaphysics', the band (a British unit led by six-string assassin Crispin Gray) shore her up with a no-frills strain of post-punk and glam that make them as cool as an axe and all the better to trash the room they're playing in. A kickass riffola team fronted by a woman frantically looking under your couch cushions for her meds: What's not to love?"
