Having released Deserted last spring, the mighty Mekons are back, surprise releasing new studio album Exquisite today. They say:

Locked down in various locations stretching from the West Coast of California to the East End of London, mekons sang and played into their cellphones, e-mailing, uploading and Whatsapping their wailings, beatings, scratchings and strummings across the globe through the billions of interconnected nodes of our networked panopticon.

As usual, Mekons mix country, punk, reggae, electronics and more into their their signature sound. Exquisite is a Bandcamp exclusive, released as part of the streaming site's Juneteenth fundraiser where they are donating their share of profits to the NAACP (and many artists and labels)
