Audacity For Dirty Vessels
Californian blasted rockers are letting rip on new record Hyper Vessels (out through Suicide Squeeze). The guitar wail in the middle of the track 'Dirty Boy' reminds me of Ty Segall over the past year or two - which makes sense, seeing as he recorded the album. The track is breakneck and bustling, and absolute blast, the best rock song I have heard so far this year. It isn't always hell for leather rock though, as other cut 'Umbrellas' shows - a anthemic blast about trying to find your footing, your place in this mixed up world. Either end of the spectrum shows the four-piece ready to let rip, which bodes well for the album when it arrives on April 1. They will be touring the States extensively over that time too (playing with the likes of Dirty Fences, Har Mar Superstar and Thee MVPs), so you will have plenty of chances to catch them blowing up.
