Organ Thing of The Day: A quick one today for there are things to be done, Empath‘s new single ‘Born 100 Times’ is out now on Fat Possum Records. The music does all the talking, the video backs it all up in style… more details should you require more details, and surely you do?
“Empath are from Philadelphia and play a kaleidoscopic, hooky mix of off-the-wall psych-pop, indie and punk – after the enforced pandemic break, they’ve lost no momentum and will be touring the US with the likes of Modest Mouse, Fucked Up and Future Islands before the year is out”. Hooky is just about the right word, that slightly unbalances washing maching in an almost out of control spin of a sound. They’re the kind of band I’d like to paint record sleeves for and I haven;t wanted ot do that for a long long time. They kind of make me think of Cay, they put a smile on my face, music that makes you smile is a good thing…… THat song Hanging Out of Cars is brilliant, you find it on thier debut album, got to rush, more soon I expect…
Now signed to Fat Possum, they return with their first new material since 2019’s debit “Active Listening: Night On Earth”, with “Born 100 Times” produced by Jake Portrait of UMO.
