The US new wave trio Superbean released the LP Shit Show on the 8th.
A dozen track album (available on bandcamp) of ska and new wave infused songs that shake an enraged fist at the world around, while inviting the audience to join in with the party. With their frustrations not taking over the positive vibes of the music rather marrying in an addictive roughly thirty three minutes of high energy rock’n’roll.
The closer is the celtic-rock derived Satan, Lend Me A Dollar.
Drawing influences from mod and brit-blues the trio deliver in their latest release – Shit Show (available on bandcamp) – a track of powerful instrumentation and percussion combinations that have the listener joining in on the dance-floor whilst paradoxically the vocal, which also sounds of good nature, is expressing a lyric of societal-inequalities with scathing contempt.
Conjoining derision with a sense of togetherness with the 99% – give their protestations greater impact than would be achieved through phlegm strewn lips screaming invective.
I apologise for the late scheduling of this song which has been sitting in my email inbox since earlier this month.
