DESCRIPTION

After years, this vinyl-wielding 4-piece originating from Brighton —   the one and only Soft Rocks — have finally committed their collective wit to a slew of original tunes. "We Hunt Buffalo Now" is a punky dub monster serving as the first single in a series surrounding their  = imminent debut album, "The Curse of Soft Rocks". In an age where any laptop-savvy poseur can upload their bland nu-disco or faux-Chi-house directly to the cesspool of digitally downloadable fodder, it is more than refreshing to hear this cheeky bunch blending a mixed bag of instrumentation and obscure influences so recklessly. Guest vocals are provided by San Francisco post-punk hero Jorge Socarras (vocalist of Indoor Life and songwriter for Patrick Cowley). In case that wasn't   enough, flip her over for the genius remix by Andrew Weatherall, a bonafide glam stomper that slaps you across the face with a fuzzy bassline and greaseball guitar chords. Pure class.
