Ausmuteants: Fed Through a Tube 7"
Latest single from this great Australian band, released just in time for their recent US tour. If you haven't heard Ausmuteants yet, they play completely infectious, high-energy new wave-infused punk. They kind of remind me of the Spits in that they have that constant 16th-notes-on-the-hi-hats thing as well as some catchy synths, and their songwriting is of the "Ramones on 45RPM" school. Really, what's not to like? It's simple, catchy, maybe even slightly dumb punk rock, and if that's your style (i.e. you buy releases on Total Punk Records) you really need this one as well.
