*[consequenceofsound.net] Ohio lo-fi noise pop trio Times New Viking sure do like to label-hop. They moved from Matador to Merge Records for 2011′s Dancer Equired, and now they’re returning home to Siltbreeze, the label that released their 2005 debut, Dig Yourself. The partnership has been renewed for the release of the band’s new EP, Over & Over, due out October 16th.
The EP comprises six tracks and is the result of a “modest” creative flux. As for the sound, Over & Over “tempers the primal panic-punk of their salad days and fuses it with the sustained, keen pop skill found within their later catalog.” Check out the tracklist below to see what names they’ve given this new temperament.
Over & Over Track List:
02. Telephone Wires
04. Future with Girls
05. Middle Class Drags
06. At The Bar0s
*[FMQB.com] While fans are enjoying the Afghan Whigs reunion, mainman Greg Dulli says he has no idea whether the reunited band will keep going after their current U.S. tour wraps in November. "The group is a going concern as it's going," Dulli tells Billboard. "I am being utterly honest when I tell you we haven't really talked about anything other than what we're doing right now. It's kind of cool that it's happened that way because it's very much in the moment, and appreciating the moment is something that sometimes gets lost in everyday life. Everything that's happening now is happening in its own inimitable, organic way. So right now I'm surfing this wave. If the way continues on I'll know it, and if it's time to hop off the wave, I'll know that, too. But I don't know the answer yet." He added that the band has "recorded a couple more things. We'll see if they pop out at an appropriate time."
