Records of the Year. Selected by: Gnarwolves
After the impressing EP marathon of the past years and a spontaneus detour into the business of brewing, Gnarwolves – probably the most outstanding hit machine on the gateway from pop to skate punk – let themselves be talked around to releasing their first full lenght. In our interview during their visit to Vienna, the Brighton three piece recommended us some records for the Heavy Pop advent calendar.
Prawn – ‚Kingfisher‚
By far my favourite record of the year. It’s just great. It’s such a great indie-emo record with a kind of American Football vibe. They got trumpets and shit – it’s fucking rat. It’s crazy, but it works. They are so good live and make it sound even better live as well, which is why they are such a good band. I think that’s the most important thing about a band. If you got a good record – fair play, but if you can’t play it live – fuck off.
Nothing – ‚Guilty of Everything
It’s a really cool record. It’s really interesting for me, because I listen to bands like My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive – a lot of old bands. This is kind of a slow-rise that has always been there of shoegazy, noisy bands. They just put out a really cool record. Really good to hear.
Public Domain – ‚Blood and Concrete‚
It is like an eight-track EP. It’s fast, like skate punk and kind of a revival of Striking Distance and bands from Revelation Records. It also reminds me of the rising of UK bands like Flex. It’s good.
Vielen Dank an Gnarwolves für die Teilnahme am Heavy Pop Adventskalender 2014!
