Stream: Forever Cult – Codeine

Having made their name so far with a spasmodic string of CDs, cassettes, digital tracks and a Too Pure Singles Club 7″, Forever Cult are on the verge of putting out their most substantial release to date. A 10″ EP titled Homewrecker, via their regular base Clue Records, will be unleashed on the world come July 7th. You can begin to prepare yourself with a taste of that now, by listening to lead single Codeine.

Video: Avalanche Party – I’m So Wet

When, whilst in the process of sorting through a fortnight’s worth of emails I came across a PR message about a new Clue Records’ signing, I wondered how I’d missed that – of course I hadn’t, the label’s newsletter was just in a different folder that I’d not got round to checking yet. Anyway the band in question are Avalanche Party, and from the first listen to current single I’m So Wet they had me hooked. By the time I’ve actually got round to writing anything there’s a video to accompany it, a simple but effective one that visualises the darkly hypnotic aesthetic of the song. From a hissed intro that sounds like the basilisk from Harry Potter, listening to this feels like dancing in a club that is just bit too sleazy but it’s ok cos you’re drunk, and you’ll pretend to regret going the next day but know you’ll be back because it feels seductively fun.
