Flat Worms really belt-sanded us with their 7” on Volar Records, and we are proud as new papas to present their debut EP. They continue their ride on a buzzsaw wave of feedback-tipped riffs into the middle distance, smog choked sunset receding in the rearview, a thousand yard dead-pan surgically pinned to a high octane set of boredom energized punk pistons. Flat Worms – an ears-a-ringing missive from the end of the cul-de-sac, the mirage of direction wavering above a mid-sized American suburb at dusk, constellations bleached black by the sprawl. A little bit Wipers, a little Wire, and a lot of late-capitalist era anxious energy – Flat Worms scratch the itch quite nicely,

Bought this after hearing “Red Hot Sand” played on Marc Riley’s show. Cannot get enough of that song.
