Shit & Shine are back with yet more of their filthy muck for your depraved earholes. This new one is on bright green vinyl and looks good enough to eat. Lower your needle onto the baize and opener 'Dinner With My Girlfriend' is a lengthy slow-groover with lots of disgusting bass distortion and farty hip-hop drums with a barely-audible vocodered-to-shit vocal over the top. Horrible-sounding but strangely compelling, it's really sucked me in. The outrageous levels of distortion remind me of some of the grubbily abrasive tones on the early Trans Am records, and also like this nasty repeato duo I saw in London last year called 100% Beefcock & The Titsburster. Then there's two shorter songs rounding off the first side, one of which has melodic but buzzy bass taking us to hypnotic places, and then the title track offers a surprising little loungey reprieve from the intense tones with a gentle groove and fingerpicked guitar (and weird high-pitched vocals in places making sure you don't forget to be a bit weirded out).
The second side opens with the brief but violent power-electronics of 'Woodpecker' before the other lengthy track of the album 'Rodeo Girls'. It's not as abrasive as the lengthy one on the other side but not as groovy either, instead opting for some kind of stuttering psych-jam insanity that mixes aggressive dance and brain-melting post-dub atmospheres in a way that is designed to confuse. Then we've just got the pulsating tribal-industrial vibes of slow burner 'Youth Led Worship' to round off the set with some gentle, foreboding ambience. Once again these mysterious fellas have come up with the goods. Only 400 of these have been pressed so it's the usual snooze:lose situation.
