I don't know a lot (anything at all really) about this band but I'm enjoying this new EP by Arndales. Are they English? The singer sounds English but they're on In The Red and have 'USA' in the album title so I could be wrong there. They sound kind of like The Fall, Parquet Courts, Shitty Limits and Elastica all rolled up in one sinister, crunchy rock package. It's very good.

The guitar sounds are really slicing and they have a nice line in simple stop-start riffs over which the singer grumbles and rants louchely in a way that reminds me of short-lived Leeds rockers The Uprights. They really know how to imbue a mid-paced chug with a bit of sharp clanky post-punk swagger, and thickened out by garagey sounding organ drones it sounds crunchily triumphant. Some of the sinewy riffing and exclamatory vocals can remind me of Bilge Pump at times, but without their crazy elastic time signatures. The only problem here is that the six songs are over too soon, I'm hungry for a full-length.
