Smalltown America All-Dayer: Carnivores


The first in a two-week series of videos capturing Derry label Smalltown America’s recent, hugely successful sixth All-Dayer, we very much start as mean to go on in the solid company of Scottish alt-rock trio Carnivores.

Illustrious headliners at the eight-act showcase at the tail-end of July, the STA-signed band went one further and seized the opportunity to record their entire performance as a live album, the aptly-titled Live at Smalltown America. A self-proclaimed “glimpse of three men lost in a primal blur of musical electricity, swimming in seas of violent noise”, the nine-track release is available to download for two weeks only here.

Better still, check out the Glasgow three-piece performing the breakneck ‘Are We Cooking With Napalm?’ from the set below and check back tomorrow for another video from one of the featured acts.
