The new album from the Close Lobsters has been 6 years in the making. Including the brand new single “All Compasses Go Wild” The album will be released on Transparent Orange Vinyl and Grey Vinyl, it will also be available on CD.

The Scottish indie band Close Lobsters, who originally appeared on NME’s famed C-86 cassette, have just released their first album in 32 years. Post Neo Anti picks right up where they left off,
full of jangly guitars and big melodies.

Jangling guitars the Paisley-based Scots Close Lobsters return to the fray with enough fervor and dash to make one wonder if even a single one of the last thirty-four years of calendar pages has in fact been torn from its place on the great rock wall. Rising from a growing feedback drone, the chiming dual strum of two electric guitars timed to the gallop of a rhythm section surely fueled by a transfusion of pure teenage energy, what’s perhaps most surprising given all that is that the true triumph in “Johnnie” (released ahead of new album Post Neo Anti…) is how utterly moving and elegiac it is.

At once full of kinship, yearning, and the joy inherent in this mysterious arc of existence we all share, it is truly inconceivable to imagine a finer tribute. It’s a claim made all the more viscerally true by the fact that, by song’s end, soaked in one of ‘those’ melodies redolent of that mid-80’s golden age of which Close Lobsters were such an integral part (think the Minks the Junies the Mighty Lemon Drops et al, The power of song, it’s real and by the evidence submitted here, no one knows that better than Close Lobsters.

Officially released on February 28th, 2020.
