Artist: The Coathangers
Label: Xray Recordings
I just found out about The Coathangers in 2011 when i heard a few songs from their latest album “Larceny and Old Lace” and it just blew me away so i started off ordering all the vinylsingles the band had released up to that point, i just love the mixture of melodies and chaos in their music. “Hurricane” is the latest single from the album, and is a double A-sided flexidisc. I don’t really like flexidiscs because the sound isnt too good on them, but still it’s a very cool format, and just the fact that there are labels still releasing flexis are pretty cool, well… labels that aren’t Russian bootleg flexis i might say. This single is released in clear vinyl flexi, and in limited to 300 handnumbered copies, itäs double A sided wich simply means that there are no songs at all on the B side, simple as that.
Both songs are from their latest album, first off we have “Hurricane”, a really cool song wich mixtures nice melodies and uptempo parts wich a really cool singer. I just love the sound of the vocalis here, the drummer sings the verses and the guitarist sing the chours. The next track are a more laid back tune called “Johnny”, also very good and more popish wich a superb bass-line in it and i strongly recommend you to check out this band. The band reminds alot of old riot grrrl bands that had their prime in the end of the 90s or so, mixed up with rock n pop, it sounds fresh and interesting and not dated at all.
