Taken from their upcoming album Incidental Music, W. H. Lung‘s new release “Second Death Of My Face” establishes them as new players in modern rock.

W. H. Lung‘s first cut “Simpatico People” was a delightful homage to the originators of Krautrock. Their new track sees them pushing beyond the confines of that genre and into synthier, shinier territory.

While still retaining their now-hallmark sense of rhythmic propulsion, “Second Death of My Face” offers a spit-polished, chrome-plated melodic element to their sound – similar to the leap NEU! made between their second record and NEU! 75. The exciting thing about this pair of W. H. Lung tracks is that they’re from the same record.

“I put down some nonsense for melody over an early draft,” says Joseph E. of the band, “and when I listened back it sounded like ‘my face, my face.’ The images that followed seemed filmic and the idea went from there. The chorus came to me as I fiddled on the piano in Central Library. It was big and unashamed and I was thinking of Bowie.

“My phone had died so I couldn’t record it as a voice note. I remember the panic of not wanting to lose the melody and of needing to try the idea out (out loud). I rushed home with my eyes half closed, singing it over and over in my head. It’s about watching your own life lived.”

This is the second single from the record for you. The bulk of Second Death Of My Face was developed on the piano of Manchester’s Central Library, and it is a five and half minute epic, with cathartic lyrics and soaring crescendos – probably their most anthemic release so far…“Second Death Of My Face” is out now and debut album Incidental Music drops 5th April on Melodic Records.

W. H. Lung is a recording project founded in Manchester in mid-2016. Its first single to yield is the dream-like and shifting ‘Inspiration!’, recorded at The Nave in Leeds and produced by Matt Peel (Eagulls). A song that speaks to the ideas of eternity, belonging and meaninglessness, it takes the shape of a kraut/psych peregrination; persevering but never dull, and bringing it home before the break. The motorik nature of the track stems from W. H. Lung’s writing ethic which, with an Alesis drum machine at its core, aims to create a surrounding maelstrom of ethereal circuits and hypnotic rhythms. W. H. Lung continue to write and record. The debut album ‘Incidental Music’ drops 5th April 2019 on Melodic Records.

The first single taken from W. H. Lung’s debut album ‘Incidental Music’ out 5/4/19.

Have you Listened to the propulsive indie-rock of Cool Ghouls, and their wonderfully wholesome Animal Races LP (Melodic Records). It’s actually been eighteen months since its summer 2016 release, and, as such, the band have a new track “CCR Bootleg” is both a perfectly-timed return, and an energetic reminder of their craft.

Taken from a new Post Trash’s new compilation – Volume 3 – this gleaming new cut will sit alongside tracks from the likes of Pardoner, Christina Schneider, Bad History Month, and many others, while all benefits will be donated to Puerto Rico hurricane relief. Rowdy and rambunctious, CCR Bootleg is a skittering four-minutes, showcasing the punkier side of the band, that boisterous lead-vocal backing up a suitably solid-but-slack backline that adds a distinct and palpable air of city living, from the he daily clamour, to the surrounding hedonism of such a thing.

Listen to the track below right now; it precedes a full European tour which starts in mid-February

W.H LUNG – ” Want “

W. H. Lung (635)

Manchester recent newcomers W.H. Lung continue to impress with new cut ‘Want’.

The band’s sound is immediately infectious yet difficult to place; off kilter guitar pop with swathes of electronics, their never-ending percussive chug recalls Neu! at their most expansive.

New song ‘Want‘ is a mini-epic, a masterpiece in control and release, with those impeccable Krautrock influences set against an innate pop sensibility.

Perfectly sized to occupy the side of a seven inch single, ‘Want‘ acts as a sort of mini-manifesto, with W.H. Lung barking out Kerouac’s advice: “First thought, best thought!”

Empty Cellar Records is stoked to announce the third full-length release by San Francisco’s Cool Ghouls, Animal Races. Fans of their self-titled debut and 2014’s A Swirling Fire Burning Through the Rye will be similarly stoked to hear how this band has continued to evolve. If the first album was a celebratory debut, and the second an earnest venture into deeper waters, this third album is like the crystal born of the murky womb that was the second record, fertilized by the initial intention of the first. Not only have the Cool Ghouls reaped the crop they sowed; they’ve baked it into some new kind of bread.

For the uninitiated – Cool Ghouls play rock’n’roll. That’s about all there is to it. They’re California natives. They try to do a good job. They like to try to elevate and get far out. They also like to keep it real. They like to make friends and have a good time. They don’t like bullshit. They want to keep growing and learning how to become more powerful musicians. This record reflects the discoveries they’ve made over the last five years about live performance, themselves, and each other.

The eleven tracks, recorded to tape by Kelley Stoltz in his backyard studio and mixed by Mikey Young (Total Control etc.), are first and foremost documents of the four-piece’s live performance of the tunes. Many of the songs were road-tested, but – unlike the prior records – a few of them were not. This opened the door for some new looks: an acoustic guitar, some synth, upright piano, a little pedal steel wizardry from Tom Heyman, etc. It’s Cool Ghouls doing what they’ve always done, but in more ways and better.

Animal Races will be available on LP/CD (8/19) in the US via Empty Cellar Records and the EU/UK via Melodic Records; and also, on cassette via Burger Records. All versions feature full-color artwork painted by Shannon Shaw (Shannon and The Clams).

Well, I'm dyslexic so writing about something I love: Music, might help but it's most likely just full of mistakes. That title is also lyrics from The Drones song called I Don't Want To Change. Oh, my name is William and thanks for having a look.
