Hit of the week: Working Men’s Club ‘Teeth’

Whilst previous single ‘Bad Blood’ aims for Talking Heads, ‘Teeth’ makes you look silly by destroying all previous conceptions of what you thought Working Men’s Club  would be musically; but they help you dance away the smirks regardless.

A lazy review would associate ‘Teeth’ with LCD Soundsystem, however instead there’s more of a Post-punk Kraftwerk at play – coupled with a very prominent Mark E Smith esque vocal – that doesn’t so much invite you to the dancefloor as much as putting a stopper in your dancing shoes.

In short this is perfect evolution for WMC with its obnoxious synths that build throughout before detonating into an indie fuelled samba jam that gets more and more incessant as the track draws on.

Les cicatrius experimentals de Suuns

Camarada de Ty Segall i antic company d’armes de Mark E. Smith a The Fall, Tim Presley, la viva encarnació de la cara més al·lucinada, lisèrgica i nua de la psicodèlia californiana es presenta a l’Apolo al capdavant de Whit Fence. L’acompanyen l’experimentació ascendent dels canadencs Suuns, que van sorprendre l’any passat amb un treball d’electrònica i rock industrial violent i cru, ‘Suuns + Jerusalem In My Heart’ (2015) i la psicodèlia abstracta del polonès Stara Rzeka, que donarà pas a un final de nit explosiu amb Optimo DJs, escocesos malabaristes de la mescla i autèntics paladins de l’eclecticisme electrònic. Avui dins del Primavera als Clubs a la sala Apolo.
