Description (English):
Methyl Ethel have announced details of their new album, Everything Is Forgotten, alongside a new track and video, plus European and North American tour dates.
Released on 3rd March, Everything Is Forgotten is a vivid, compelling and mysterious creature, all sinewy, curvaceous pop nuggets and enigmatic currents. Written and recorded by Perth-based frontman Jake Webb, the album was brought to life by acclaimed British producer James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Foals). As demonstrated by last year’s single ‘No. 28.’, the pair’s collaboration has infused Methyl Ethel’s shoegaze dream-pop palate with electronic and polyrhythmic flourishes, allowing Webb’s keening, gender-fluid vocals and searing poetry to take centre stage.
Following ‘No. 28’ is ‘Ubu’, a frenetic pop song inspired by Alfred Jarry’s surrealist play Ubu Roi. A self-portrait of self-flagellation and guilt, its companion video, directed by Paxi, takes some of its absurdist cues from Jarry. Check out ‘Ubu’ here, or in the player below.

* 180g Japanese 1LP Gatefold Edition, Reissued
Description (English):
Too Much – an obscure group who made only one album I’m aware of, ‘Too Much’ [Atlantic, 1971]. It’s nothing very original, containing a fairly generic mix of heavy rock [notably influenced by Black Sabbath], slow blues [one song sounds like a thinly-disguised re-make of Led Zeppelin’s ‘Since [...]

Bio (Japanese):
Yogee New Wavesに続く、Roman Labelの第2弾アーティスト、ネバーヤングビーチ待望の1st Full Albumが完成!
細野晴臣を中心とした、はっぴいえんどやティン・パン・アレー周辺の70年代J-POPサウンドを現代にアップデートした、平均年齢23歳、結成から僅か半年となる東京の若者5人組。昭和な純喫茶から漂う珈琲のにおい、春の訪れから夏休みまでのワクワク、真夏の蒸せ返るような暑さ、残暑から秋に移り変わる哀愁など、様々な景色、におい、感情、日常が混じり合った独特な空気感、そしてユーモア溢れる歌詞がごく自然と流れていく全9曲。トリプルギターのアンサンブルが最高に気持ち良く、サイケデリックでエキゾチック、かつ極上のポップサウンドは彼等にしか成せないオリジナリティに溢れた傑作。またバンド主宰の安部がバンド編成になる前に宅録で制作した自主制作盤(名盤)から3曲(M-4,5,9)を再びミックスし直し収録している。真夏の気怠さ全開の名曲『夏がそうさせた』は必聴!
エンジニアには、Yogee New Wavesをはじめ、ペトロールズ、踊ってばかりの国、クリープハイプなどを手掛けるhmcの池田洋を迎え制作。リリース後は全国各地でのリリースツアーも開催。
