Handsome Dad Records (The Big Moon, Babeheaven) provide the latest pitstop for prolific home-taper Irma Vep. This two-track single is another piece of Welsh psych-pop du jour from one of the best exponents of the style currently working. Cate Le Bon and Super Furry Animals are, of course, lurking in the background here. This is a limited-edition 7”, so get it while it’s hot.
Crashing into action with a flurry of distorted guitars and schizophrenic drums is s/t - the contorted stab from Manchester's noisy outfit, Yerba Mansa. Hearing the group live is a must, but hearing this collection of anarchic expeditions is the next best thing. Sizzling, stifling and ever so slightly ear-scraping - this is a must for any lover of untamed guitars.
