Seattle trio Wimps on Kill Rock Stars, touring (watch the “Couches” video)

Seattle trio Wimps — whose lineup includes Rachel Ratner (Butts), Matt Nyce (Meth Teeth), and Dave Ramm (The Intelligence) — put out their latest album Suitcase this past November on Kill Rock Stars. The band now gave the video treatment to “Couches, a dose of fidgety post-punk with a serious emphasis on “punk” that has Matt and Rachel bouncing shouts off each other. It’s a pretty weird video, with the kind of (presumably) intentionally primitive digital editing that you might see on Adult Swim. That video premieres below, and you can stream the whole album below too.

Wimps are also going on a tour that hits NYC on April 1 at Silent Barn with WALL, Parlor Walls and Nonsense; and April 2 at Berlin. All dates are listed below.
