You can now listen to Deaf Wish’s Pain in its entirety via SPIN. The band’s first album on Sub Pop Records releases worldwide next ween on August 7th.
Pain is available for preorder from Sub Pop Mega Mart, iTunes, Amazon, and Bandcamp. Why preorder, you ask? All LP preorders from megamart.subpop.com will receive the limited Loser edition on clear, black marbled vinyl (while supplies last), and you may (or may not be) surprised to hear… there’s also a t-shirt for that.
SPIN had this to say of the album, “The group debuted on Sub Pop last October with their four-track EP St. Vincent’s, a short, dissonant introduction to the band for the wider public. With the release of their first LP for the label, Pain, it’s safe to say that the Australian foursome has since abandoned that initial mission, proving through nauseous instrumentation and chiming vocals that they have something worth sticking around for. Songs off Pain play with the whole spectrum of anxious indie rock. Some are small ruptures of electrified rage (“Newness Again,” “Eyes Closed”) while others are more mellow and melodic (“Sunset’s Fool,” “On”). All four members take turns on vocals, and each offers a hypnotically haunting aura no matter if they’re screaming or taking it easier on their vocal cords (see album premiere July 30th)”
