SMELLS LIKE NEW VINYL – Four New LPs Out Today

3 September 2021

Band: MEATBODIES
Who: Alt-rock group formed in 2013 in Monrovia,
California
by Chad Ubovich / 3 studio albums

New album: 333
Released: 3 September 2021 via In The Red

Chad Ubovich (frontman): “Here in America, we’re watching the fall
of U.S. capitalism, and 333 is a cartoonish representation of that decline.”

Turn Up The Volume: A wall-of-fuzzing-and-buzzing guitar rock.
No wonder Ubovich plays with the equally fuzzing and fuzzing Ty
Segall
 in one of the latter’s bands called, eh, Fuzz.

Loud and Quiet Magazine says: “Listening on headphones, especially, heightens
the many intricacies and textures permeating the record. In particular, the twinkling
chimes and glimmering guitars punctuating ‘The Fix’ are all the more rewarding when consumed with no external distractions.”

Turn Up The Volume: For (only) 37 minutes, Suuns infiltrates your ears for
a relaxing electro pop trip with soothing effect. Not their best, but grows on
you after a couple of spins.
