Wimps, Preening, Fuckwolf, States of Nature
Add to Cal
Seattle’s Wimps (Rachel Ratner, Matt Nyce, and David Ramm) are back with their third album, Garbage People, out July 13th on LP, cassette, CD, and MP3! Known all over as one of the premiere “plenty of nonsense” guitar/bass/drum groups, Garbage People finds Wimps taking a sonic leap forward (there’s saxophone, keyboard, and juuuust enough cowbell) and lyrically (subject matter ranges from gender pay inequality, decline of bee populations as a result of climate change, insomnia, and wanting to steal a pizza ... but only if it’s cheese!) On Garbage People, Wimps have successfully filtered the best parts of 70’s Rough Trade, the International Pop Underground 7” series, Devo, The B-52s, the Breeders, etc. into a unique and timeless sound that appeals to playlist streaming teens AND adults who own over 500 records.
No Wave from Oakland!
“This band is called Fuckwolf. This, to me, sounds like LCD Soundsystem if you shot them with an elephant tranquilizer meets the second Liars album (the one about witches). It’s totally narcotic. Suicide-like repeating synth drug dances. It’s totally hypnotic and rad. I give it several stars on a scale of one to lots.” – KUCI FM
