Black Country, New Road
Athen's, France

So what Dan Carey does with Speedy Wunderground is that he gets a band into his studio and has them lay down a track quick-quick like. No overdubs, as few takes as possible, that kind of thing. It means that all of the label’s singles so far, from Melt Yourself Down to Flamingods to Childhood, have a breathless energy to them. The same holds for debutants Black Country, New Road, whose tune ‘Athen’s, France’ is a jittery slice of Fall-esque post-punk.

Squid
The Dial

Brighton quintet the Squid may have more limbs than their namesake, but at least they put them to good use. They’ve finally thought us worthy for a proper release of live-set favorite the Dial. Imagine a tightly compressed Talking Heads track, which slowly gives way to suppressed, and rather noisy, post-rock tendencies before getting back to its old funky self.

Speedy Wunderground – Year 3

I hope you don't think I'm ageist when I say I was astonished that Dan Carey is 47. I had him down as a young whippersnapper. It only makes me respect him more for his worth ethic producing all the spontaneous recordings for the likes of Melt Yourself Down, Warmduscher, Flamingods etc etc as we all know when you get to your mid 40's you start to feel very tired indeed.

I know that we're always being accused of being ageist but who knew that Dan Carey was 48? I always had him down as some young whippersnapper. I'm kind of glad actually. Anyway here he produces a debut record by this 'enigmatic' London band. It's one of those things that people like me say is the worst thing they've ever heard then it becomes really big and you realise you were wrong all along.

Scottibrains
Sustained Threat

The idea behind speedywunderground is simple. Dan Carey, who has produced for Franz Ferdinand and Bat For Lashes, will record a record in a day, then mix it the next day. It’ll largely be done live, sans overdubs, and he has a synth called a ‘Swarmatron’ that gets to appear on each new release. Following on from the likes of Flamingods, Melt Yourself Down and Meatraffle, Scottibrains are the latest to take up the challenge. ‘Sustained Threat’ is a fun Kraut-punk rabble that’s not a million miles from Moon Duo.

Flamingods
Hyperborea (Part 1 + 2)

Flamingods’ spiralling psychedelic super-international sound has enticed many over the years, especially with their ecstatic live shows. Those who’ve enjoyed said shows will want to hear this expanded re-recording of their favourite set-closer Hyperborea, which spans thirteen minutes and a stack of multi-layered sections. Intense stuff, so much so that Speedy Wunderground have had to expand to 10 inches of vinyl for the first time!

DEWEY
Loch Linnhe

Dan Carey’s (Sexwitch) Speedy Wunderground label has a very strict set of rules to follow when it comes to recording processes. Upon discovering London based multi-instrumentalist DEWEY his instantly snapped her up for her debut single, catchy and odd pop filled with spontaneity, think of a sunnier side of PJ Harvey and you’re in the right ball park.

Peluché
The Guy With The Gammy Eye

More ecstatic musical adventure from Speedy Wunderground, here. Peluche take silvery guitar riffs a la Beach House and wrap them around proggy ambient textures that wouldn't be out of place on either an old Kayo Dot record or a newer Camel one, before a driving beat pushes the song into a psychedelic vortex. "The Guy With The Gammy Eye" makes no element of the process as its focus, even deliberating on the placement of its desperately reverberating vocals. A wonderful myriad of myriads.

Melt Yourself Down
Another Weapon

Famous sax stomper party crew Melt Yourself Down shake hands with the enigmatic singles club Speedy Wunderground for a tune called "Another Weapon", written shortly after the band's first, immensely celebratory record and played live a lot to very happy people. The danceable post-punk crew fit compactly into label headman/quickfire producer Dan Carey's office.

JW Ridley
Everything (Deathless)

JW Ridley brings his playful dream rock to Speedy Wunderground with the Everything (Deathless) vinyl 7”. Imagine a rich Fleetwood Mac sound, but sadder, more introverted and experimental. 1980s pop and rock textures are clearly a reference point, but updated with luscious synths and electronics.

Mr Dan feat. Guilty Simpson
I'm Gone / I’m Gone (instrumental)

I’m Gone is a very fun new track from Mr Dan, with a properly thumping beat and traces of some lovely samples from somewhere. Vocal flow is provided by Guilty Simpson in the second collaboration between this producer and this MC, though the first one for which they were in the same room. The track is presented in both vocal and instrumental versions on this 7” release, which is limited to 250 copies.

Warmduscher / Meatraffle
Meatduscher

Two bands from the South London / Fat White Family / Trashmouth Records axis team up for a split single on Speedy Wunderground. Both Warmduscher and Meatraffle produce rough-edged noisy post-punk with aplomb. The double A-side split is caused Meatduscher, which puts images of washing meat into my head...

Speedy Wunderground - Year 2

Speedy Wunderground is a label set up by South London producer Dan Carey. The idea is to produce 7” as quickly as possible.

Boxed In (featuring Formation)
Running Out

New release on producer Dan Carey (Franz Ferdinand, Django Django)'s new label Speedy Wunderground. Boxed In (otherwise known as Speedy collaborator Oli Bayston) do electro rock indie which is sort of in the Keane vein. This was apparently written and recorded in under three hours, for that 'spontaneous' feel.

Loyle Carner + Kate Tempest
Guts

A 7” from Kate Tempest, everyone’s favourite British gal rapper, and Loyle Carner, an MC from London town, another of those found through a youtube video, 20 something rappers. Together, Tempest and Carner hit a good, ballsy balance of British grit layered onto a classic hip hop beat. 7” in edition of 250.

Mr Dan (featuring Guilty Simpson)
Firewater

We apparently have Run The Jewels to thank for Mr Dan’s new musical angle, presented for the first time on this 7”. Seeing them play put Dan on a heavy, aggressive beat-making tip, and Firewater is a strong example of such. MC duties provided by Guilty Simpson, with an instrumental version on the flip. On Speedy Wunderground.

Boss
I'm Down With That

Boss joins up members of Warpaint, All We Are, veteran session player Sarah Jones, and Speedy Wunderground label-head Dan Carey (who has recently collaborated on Bat for Lashes’ side project Sexwitch). The resulting synth pop is, well, lovely, as well as damn catchy. Limited to only 250 copies, with a dub version on the B-side.

FEWS
ILL

In the tradition of producer Dan Carey’s 7’’ label Speedy Wunderground, this 7’’ release from enigmatic Swedish/American four piece Fews was recorded in a day, mixed within twenty-four hours and mastered immediately afterwards. A track in two parts, the composition builds upon searing guitars and slowly emerging vocals into a wash of disorientating, climatic noise.

Teleman
Strange Combinations

Teleman are the latest band to take part in South London producer, Dan Carey’s Speedy Wunderground project with their song, Strange Combinations. The B-side features a dub version of the track. Strange Combinations is a brand new three minute burst of dynamic rhythms, with synths that build and reverb-drenched vocals. Teleman have had a successful twelve months with their debut album, Breakfast doing well critically and commercially. The idea of the Speedy Wunderground project is to record and mix 7” singles within two days and release them as soon as they’re ready. Very little marketing and promotion takes place.

Telegram
Inside Outside

Close your eyes, and allow yourself a little dream. Save up for a few weeks on your paper route, and use your reserves to buy a new punk 7” single. Doesn’t that sound like a beautiful memory of days long passed? Now’s time to relive that, except now the wait is for the release date: Telegram’s latest single Inside Outside is out March 9!

Natalie Bang Bang
Dangerous When Wet

It starts with a muted riff and a foggy programmed drum beat before Natalie Bang Bang's sturdy, confrontational vocal comes in talking about what kind of boy she wants (spoiler: not a shit one). 'Dangerous When Wet' sulks along at this pace, incorporating vocal harmonies and glitches that evoke the obscured and distorted bedroom punk of Atlas Sound, as mixed with more formal chart pop. It's very good, and never reaches for a climax, knowing it's catchy enough to steady its course. There's a dubby B-side on this 7", too.
