Sub Pop will release feedtime’s “flatiron” b/w “stick up jack” single, the Australian group’s first new recorded material in 20 years, on 7” / DL worldwide February 9th/10th.
After reforming and touring in support of the Aberrant years, 2012’s box-set collection of feedtime’s early material, the band couldn’t help but bang out a couple of new songs. “flatiron” is a shuffling blues-punk thumper that stands up to the most classic feedtime songs, and “stick up jack” is an uptempo one-chord wonder akin to Wire playing a cowboy bar. Both tracks were recorded by Mikey Young (Total Control, Eddy Current Suppression Ring) in 2014.
Mess and Noise says, ““flatiron” has everything we expect from feedtime: gnashing slide guitar, a rail-jumping bass hook, choppy drums and terse vocals.” Meanwhile Brooklyn Vegan had this to say, “Age doesn’t seem to have mellowed the band at all, as both songs are raspy-voiced ragers.”
