Rising tides, self-help gurus, pricey new age answers to the unanswerable, unfettered capitalism, shitposting, a new video from Slouch; these are the harbingers of end times. Out today – and directed by Hugh Cannon – the video for their odyssey on the alpha male phenomenon, ‘I Get What’s Mine’ is a maelstrom of all of the above and more. It channels the likes of Ween and Brainiac, condensed into the kind of omni-layered satirical slacker noise they’ve near enough mastered.
Long one of the most interesting bands operating in the Irish indie rock sphere, Dublin quartet Slouch have been working away behind closed doors on new material, having recently expanded upon their power trio origins. Their long-awaited debut album, titled I Got This Job Because I’m Too Stupid To Steal – recorded by one of the island’s best, Chris Barry – has taken on a Chinese Democracy-esque gestation period; This single, for example, originally featured on A Litany of Failures Vol. 3, but the LP is finally set for release next week on June 14th.
You’ll be able to order I Got This Job Because I’m Too Stupid To Steal from Bandcamp. Watch the video below.
