Oh Twitter, we love thee. Why, you ask? Because without you we wouldn’t know such important things as Zomby’s Soundcloud sketches and the following blast of Big Blackness from Weird Wives, a new noise-rock project from 3/5 of Surfer Blood (guitarist Thomas Fekete, bassist Brian Black and touring percussionist/keyboardist Marcos Marchesani) and some verse-chewing singer named Nick Klein.
As leaked on the band’s own Twitter account last night, here is one two-track single and a complete EP with such tellingly-named cuts as “Snake Boy” and the nine ear-ringing, pedal-pushing minutes of “Bulldozer Puppet Fucker.” Sounds like someone’s been listening to a lot of Lightning Bolt, Unsane and Jesus Lizard. A proper 7-inch of even more Weird Wives wackiness is on the way soon…
