Here’s a fantastic recent track from a double 3″CD (!) from Vancouver’s SHEARING PINX, one of the better debuts I’ve heard in a great long while. At times abstract noise, the grande majority of the release finds the band pummeling a tight-ass riff into the ground, with lots of skittering, creepy noises making the nature scene around it. Take for instance my favorite, the opening, “New Gospel”. You’re gonna get glimpses of funkier early 80s acts like The Pop Group, PiL and Gang of Four here, whereas a good chunk of the rest of the discs veers off into avant-noise territory of recent vintage. I say it’s all good – and this one’s the best.
