Groovy, distorted psych punk on very gorgeous, and very limited, red and white splatter 10” vinyl. EP1 emerges from the deranged minds of trio Muertos. These tracks distill the atonal riffing and droning vocals of post-Velvet Underground garage into a pure snotty essence of amplifier fuzz and catchy hooks.

Wowowoaohohowowoaoaowoowowowowowowowowaowh. Or: Muertos are a shoegazing, psychedelic, nice noise crew who make scores for pedals and chords. Their songs smoke up the place like the Brian Jonestown Massacre with the same kindly snarls of simple mantras (take the first track’s hypnotic “you blow my mind… like a loaded shotgun… you blow my mind”).
This is a simple introduction into the largely no frills world of Muertos, focusing on precise interplay and a fine balance of distance and approach -- there’s distortion to the max, but the vocals are clean and upfront, positing songcraft alongside hints of its destruction. The Jesus and Mary Chain really would be proud; maybe the two bands’ll get a chance to hang. “Snakes”, for my money, is the best Muertos cut yet, a lovely little psychedelic western with a super slow riff curling up amongst all the commotion and offering the respite of ballad. It’s got an absolutely lovely melody covered twice over by a nice harmony, so wait for it. Slow is captivating.
