The Big Pink

UK electro-rock duo The Big Pink (Robbie Furze and Milo Cordell) played their first ever North America set at a short-notice Mercury Lounge gig in June. They were in town recording their debut record, A Brief History of Love, which came out September 22nd in the US on 4AD (it came out Sept. 14th in the UK). That record is currently streaming online.

To support that, the Big Pink will go on a North American tour planned for the end of November and December. Live, "they are augmented by Daniel O'Sullivan from Guapo and Sunn O))), electronic artiste Jo Apps from the Planet Mu label, drummer Akiko Matsuura of Pre and Comanechi, and Al O'Connell producer/engineer for the likes of The Rapture and Klaxons". Opening the tour will be Crystal Antlers (who will also be in NYC even sooner for CMJ). They play NYC shows on December 3rd and 4th at Bowery Ballroom and Music Hall of Williamsburg, respectively. Tickets for both are on sale now. Von Haze is also on the bill of the two NYC shows.

I like this band. They remind of me better times when blur was at its best, The Verve was around and Oasis wasn't laughable. I think I'll break out my cum rag to this post and let out a messy hot goop of whiteness and let it trickle down the hairs of my legs. "Dominoes" has that energy to it that can't but help you put it on repeat.

Some mixed, but favorable feelings about the album. I think they set the bar too high with Velvet and Dominos, to me are the best songs of the album.

Haven't listened to it for long, so maybe it'll grow more on me. I am contemplating one of the concerts.

One of the best new bands out.

How 'bout I wash your mouth out with my cum rag? It'll get clean and it'll shut you up. Everyone wins!
