Drunk Mums – Order From Chaos – Audio

It was back in 2013 that the Australian new wave quartet Drunk Mums were introduced and last featured – tomorrow they release the LP Urban Cowboy.

Even on recording it is discernible that Drunk Mums is a band to get to see live as the ten crumpled tracks on the album (available on bandcamp) come staggering in to the room borne on slurred guitar, which even after faffing around with multi-tracking and mastering can’t disguise the earthy, infectious, energy of the quartet.

The roughly thirty six minutes (over seven and a half minutes of which is contained in the closing song Ripper, with most songs reaching conclusion well within three minutes) LP merely asks the listener to clear space, turn up the volume and pogo to the blues-fused garage rock’n’roll.

My pick of the release being the third – Order From Chaos.

LOCKS – Ripper – Audio

LOCKS, the England based gothic-blues quartet, revealed a new track from their forthcoming LP Skeletal Blues an hour or so ago.

LOCKS - Ripper


Ripper, which is also the B-side of the two track plus one remix single Bodies that is set for release on the 13th, discovers LOCKS in more jaunty mood than music of theirs previously featured. Although still of sultry visage, Ripper, akin to the two versions of Bodies on the single, though to a lesser extent, slides in a more celtic-folk influence that has been heard before.

Bodies – Single – LOCKS is available on iTunes.*
