YUMI ZOUMA ANNOUNCE SECOND EP, DEBUT NEW SINGLE
Thursday, 05 February 2015 00:00
 

Erstwhile Kiwi internationalists Yumi Zouma won our gong for best EP of the last year with the gorgeous self titled debut they dropped twelve months ago and they've started of 2015 in the same fashion. Last week the Christchurch-Paris-New York based pop trio announced the release of their second little gem, simply titled EP II. It features this blinder of a new single, 'Catastrophe', the chorus of which is quite simply addictive pop gold. Kim Pflaum's vocal hook is just killer. Containing five tracks including last year's 'Alena', it will be unleashed on 10" vinyl March 3. The first 500 orders get it on translucent blue while there are just 200 to ship internationally so pre-order it here asap. 'Catastrophe's' apt but strange music video is below. Apparently the first in a two parter from video auteur BANGS.

RECORD REVIEW: VIET CONG DELIVER BLISTERING DEBUT
Wednesday, 04 February 2015 00:00
 

The self titled debut long player from Calgary noise/post-punk quartet Viet Cong is our first album of the week for 2015. The intelligently crafted seven tracks employ the best elements of a myriad of approaches and sounds that personify the experimentation of the immediate post punk era but in terms of the fruits of that employment produce something truly original. Abrasive, yes, alienating, no. 

The menacing factorised march of 'Newspaper Spoons' opens proceedings followed by the deadpan vocals, pulsing bass and skeletal guitars of 'Pointless Experience' mirroring its title. The inexorable industrial whirr of 'March Of Progress embeds itself easily into the subconcious.'Bunker Buster' boasts a Women sounding high pitched guitar riff and thumping beat before a dose of pop drama enters proceedings to offer the light to the shade. Such texturing is hard to engineer but the songwriting chops of this foursome are of the highest order. 
 
'Continental Shelf' is as close to industrial pop that you'll get while the fast paced manic nature of the synth laden 'Silhouettes' plays a vital role in the album's tracklisting. Closing monster 'Death' packs more into its 11 minutes that some bands have mustered in their whole careers. 
 
For anybody, like me, who has been lamenting the tragic demise of Women, the former band of bassist and vocalist Matt Flegel and drummer Mike Wallace, the getting together of Flegel and guitarist Scott Munro and the further enlistment of Daniel Christiansen has produced an entity even better - and that's definitely a statement.  
 
James Stocker - January 22, 2015.
