INDUCTION PARTY (LP + MP3)
12" Vinyl D
Debut EP / mini LP from Mush. The vinyl release includes a download code.
Mush, the Leeds band who specialise in wryly-observational, exquisite lo-fi guitar pop, have signed to Memphis Industries and announced details of their debut EP.
Recorded at Glasgow's thriving Green Door Studio with Ronan Fay (also guitarist of ascendant Scottish rockers Sweaty Palms), the EP's six tracks follow the proud lineage of art-rock from both sides of the pond. Mush cite Pavement, Sonic Youth, Television and The Fall as their primary influences: "fundamentally we identify as music fans as much as artists. I write music that I want to hear for my own enjoyment," says vocalist / guitarist Dan Hyndman. "I've always admired people who can create visceral and inspiring art without carrying on as some transcendent being. Having your influences on your sleeve and being open is just an extension of that." [info from label]
