Further Information

Mush - Alternative Facts
Mush are from Leeds. They play a kind of slacked out art-rock. The songs are melodic and highly music-orientated but weirdly catchy and infectious. New single ‘Alternative Facts’ is a ten minute critique of the increasingly familiar phenomenon of fake news and the movement toward soundbite-orientated politics. Set to a backdrop of driving repetitive rhythms, weaving guitar textures and off the cuff a-tonal vocal style, Alternative Facts is a catchy and refreshing single choice despite having to be pressed on both sides of a 7” due to the sheer length. Live performances have prompted the expected ‘guitar band’comparisons to the likes of Pavement, Television, Velvet Underground etc. Mush, however, play with an unhinged and experimental energy and purist intentionality that means they are ones to watch in their own right.

Jumbo's Adam Gillison says "This is what we want. Sloppy Pavement-esque freakout with some psych-y inflections. More goodness from the Leeds underground. Get in early..."

Mush - Ex-Communique
Jumbo's Matthew Bradshaw says "This extended E.P. cements a range of ideas way beyond it's 5 tracks... Its fuzzed out, playful approach channels the slacker of spirit of Pavement and Sebadoh to create something way beyond these perceived influences. Big shop fave."

Thee MVP's - Sesh
In the final months of a year we can all agree has been caked in shredded nerves, it's only fitting that Thee MVPs newest single ‘Sesh’ is a 3 minute stomper of low tuned riffs set against some Weezer-style vocals, which addresses the issue of the ‘session’. It only takes about 10 seconds to realise the lyrics ain’t the happy message that’s being rolled out on the upbeat guitars. A song about dealing with your lot as a millennial and using the drink just a tad too much to see you through the week, it’s the Thursday morning rush of the guilts soundtrack you brought on yourself for already having two benders this week.
