Let's take a journey into the world of The Mind. You'd probably classify this as 'post-punk', if only because that's the only bracket into which they (very loosely) fit. Basslines pulse robotically while guitars splutter discordantly across sheets of static and electronic drums; like dub music shorn of its Caribbean groove and reinvented by retro-futuristic robots, hellbent on kicking out some brain-busting skronk while they wait for Skynet to take over. Opener 'Blah Bla Nothin' weighs in like Pere Ubu staring at the chasm between 'Dub Housing' and 'Lady From Shanghai' before drowning in hiss, and 'Enjoy Your Fantasy' is the soundtrack to This Mortal Coil's nightmares, powered by the distant sound of rolling drums and a fuzzy tension that bristles the hairs on the back of your neck while leaving you thoroughly unsettled. Elsewhere studio trickery and a dystopian sci-fi gloom hang over the whole thing like dust on a lampshade - basically it's all over the place. They're as idiosyncratic and thoroughly in tune with their own voice as the early days of Throwing Muses; throwing their glorious chaos at the wall and allowing its own order to settle. Buy a copy, dummy - make weird your new normal." Will Fitzpatrick

New LP from Austin bedroom rock duo. The two Texas natives discovered both held batches of compatible songs, intended for solo projects. They merged as Hovvdy instead. Penned separately, the duo's first-ever songwriting efforts coalesced seamlessly on debut LP Taster. Charlie and Will create like satellites on the same orbit, combining bedroom recordings into a singular worn-in sound. Brooklyn label Double Double Whammy re-released Taster in 2017, followed by Cranberry in 2018. Third LP Heavy Lifter finds new dimensions in the Hovvdy soundscape. For Heavy Lifter, the duo worked with producer Ben Littlejohn,building the album in makeshift home studios around Texas. Both singers' voices cut through more decisively than ever, carried by vivid storytelling and production eccentricities. Familiar fuzz maintains the warmth of past work, but Heavy Lifter is never muffled. Clear-cut characters and scenes emerge in the 13 tracks. "1999" wanders around a small town, while bright pop piece "Mr. Lee" retells a lonely day in reverent detail. Lo-fi Daniel Johnston moment "TellmeI'masinger" empathetically enters an artistic perspective, unwound lyrically as: "Tell me I'm a singer." Memories inform present decision-making throughout the album. Two tracks dive into family legacies, "Pixie" admitting "outside my mind/ is where I'm gonna be/ not what i had hoped at 14." "Sudbury" recounts childhood major league dreams. Breaking from the confines of guitar-based slowcore, pop and hip-hop influences expand Hovvdy's established framework. Propulsive, straightforward hooks usher in autotuned tweaks, chugging beats and genre exploration. By pulling apart slightly, Charlie and Will step into new spaces on Heavy Lifter. Always in sync, it's a balanced effort.
