Uranium Club touring this summer with Urochromes
Minneapolis' Uranium Club make ultra-angsty, tightly coiled mutant punk, the kind of on-edge music that has been made over the years by the likes of XTC, The Wipers, The Feelies, My Dad is Dead, Devo, Wall of Voodoo and Parquet Courts. They also build a mythos around themselves, that involves a fictional corporation, The National Pen Co., that releases records in addition to quality writing utensils. It's high concept but, musically, pretty easy to digest and awesome if you like this kind of stuff. They released their latest album, The Cosmo Cleaners, in March and you can stream that, along with their 2017 album, All of Them Naturals, below.
Uranium Club are not fond of things like official websites, Facebook, press releases, or generally letting people know they exist, but they'll be on an East Coast tour this summer and dates currently kick off with a NYC show at Brooklyn Bazaar on June 27. Tickets for that show are on sale now.
The rest of Uranium Club's dates are with Massachusetts' Urochromes, who have been making ultra-catchy weirdo punk for a few years now, and will release their debut album, Trope House, on May 31 via Wharf Cat. The pile-driving first single "Hair So Big" is a great example of what they do. Watch the video, which includes some skydiving, below.
Urochromes are not on the Brooklyn Bazaar show but do have a Brooklyn show at The Glove on Friday, April 19 with Florida's Golden Pelicans (FL), Brandy and Foster Care (more info).
