UROCHROMES "Trope House" LP

$12.00 $17.00


On their first long player, Urochromes complement their catchy-as-fuck punk bangers with colorful experimental rock that choogles forth like the waters of the Mississippi River Delta where it was recorded. There are classic Urochromes chargers like first single ǃˆ_—____Î__Hair So Bigǃˆ_—____Î__ and the catchy kiss-off ǃˆ_—____Î__Millieuxǃˆ_—____Î__ that pair Dick Riddickǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïs concise and explosive playing with some of Jackieboyǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïs best sketches of uptight, paranoid characters on the edge. ǃˆ_—____Î__Rumshpringaǃˆ_—____Î__ plays it straight with a beautiful slow-burning riff and soul-searching lyrics (ǃˆ_—____Î__When do I get my Rumshringa?... / I want to lean back in time like that Tower of Pisaǃˆ_—____Î__); itǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïs a new Urochromes classic where Riddickǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïs licks spark and lilt through the bridge toward the closing verseǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïs poignant refrain. The more experimental tracks, like the unhinged cover of Bikini Killǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïs ǃˆ_—____Î__Resist Psychic Death,ǃˆ_—____Î__ must be heard to be believed and show a band that gives not the slightest fuck about acceptance within the circles of boring cookie-cutter punk. Combining the raw sound of Gary Wrongǃˆ_—____Î_¨ïs Jeth-Row Studios, where the album was tracked with the talents of longstanding Urochromes engineer Will Killingsworth (Dead Air Studios), Trope House delivers the most hi-fidelity Urochromes recording to date without sacrificing any spontaneity or power. Featuring artwork by John D Morton (Electric Eels). Mastered by Carl Saff. First Edition of 1000 vinyl records.
