Institute Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
In the run-up to their 2016 European tour, Institute got themselves ready and fired-up by recording a new album, which we now see before us as Subordination. This the most live and direct Institute have ever sounded on record, with Moses Brown’s cynical, anti-normative lyrics riding on a bed of gnarly guitars. On Sacred Bones.
Snarky Sacred Bones punks Institute return for more of their old-school scowling, holding down the fortress of no frills garage fuckery long after every other band on the label has decided to honour psych rock, B-movies or Nick Cave. Hot off of the fiery scarred chords of Salt EP, they serve up Catharsis to all who like this kind of thing. I hope you like acoustic ditties from punx too, because you're gonna get them here.
Here's a debut EP on Sacred Bones from Austin, Texas's Institute, a troupe of clanky slurred post-punkers with a coldly dreamy style akin to Iceage or Teenage Panzerkorps. They've barely formed and already they're rocking a well-defined jagged, lurching noise-punk sound that packs quite a punch. A band to watch for sure.
