WOMPS new video for ‘Dreams on Demand’ was made by Brooklyn’s, Robert Kolodny of creative collective House of Nod. Kolodny enthused that “The more and more I listened to the song, the themes of weather, seasons, temperature and the passing of time became increasingly clear. I incorporated a lot of sun imaginary as well as nostalgic Americana archive footage.”
‘Live A Little Less’ and ‘Dreams On Demand’ lie somewhere between the power grunge of Nirvana, and the smoother pop elements of Teenage Fanclub. The songs combine raw garage punk with clever dynamics and classic songwriting hooks. They’re the first taste of eleven tracks recorded by Steve Albini at Electrical Audio Studios for their upcoming LP. Mastered by Matthew Barnhart of Chicago Mastering Service and is released on 18th September 2015 via Damnably Records.
Selected from eleven tracks laid down at Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio studios in December 2014 when WOMPS went in to record their debut LP. Albini’s legendary and vital “live” drum and guitar sound is apparent and remains faithful to their onstage presence. The songs were mastered by Matthew Barnhart (Bedhead, Farewell Transmission: The Music of Jason Molina, SuperChunk, Bob Mould) at Chicago Mastering Service.
WOMPS are formed from the ashes of Algernon Doll, featuring Ewan Grant (guitars/vocals), Owen Wicksted (drums) and assorted friends on bass. Drawing on influences from Sleater-Kinney, The Wipers and Cloud Nothings, the band have toured the UK, USA & Canada. They recently played dates with Speedy Ortiz, Cloud Nothings, FIDLAR, Metz, PAWS and Honeyblood.
