Meatbodies – “Tremmors”

meatbodiesThe latest great garage-rock band from S.F. delivers an explosion of fuzz riffs and reverbed vocals that cut cleanly through like a scalpel on “Tremmors.” The song is heavy and huge, but it’s handled delicately—the solo could only be described as lightly demonic. I love the way the song switches up to a new fuzzed out set of chords two-thirds of the way through—it’s just icing on the cake. Meatbodies comes from L.A.-based Chad Ubovich, who was Mikal Cronin’s bassist and then guitarist as well as the bassist in Ty Segall’s Fuzz project. Segall previously released some of Ubovich’s home recordings under Chad & The Meatbodies, and now the simply titled Meatbodies album is due soon on In the Red. They’ll be at Echo Park Rising Aug. 16 and The Echo Aug. 28.

Trash Talk – “Exile on Broadway”

Speaking of Odd Future, sounds like OFWGKTA associates Trash Talk are trying to become the hardcore Rolling Stones with “Exile on Broadway” and the Exile on Main St. referencing album art for 119, which is out Oct. 9. Lofty goals, but you can’t argue with the quality and ferocity of a track like this. Stream “Exile on Broadway” here, and preorder 119 here.
