Timmy’s Organism – “Get Up, Get Out” (Stereogum Premiere)

Timmy Vulgar (aka Timmy Lampinen) has been a Detroit garage-punk hero for nearly two decades, fronting bands like Human Eye, Clone Defects, and Epileptix. Timmy’s Organism initially formed as a experimental solo effort and expanded into a skuzzy touring trio that became an active force of its own. Now they’re releasing their new album Heartless Heathen on Jack White’s Third Man Records, becoming the second legendary Detroit underground act to join up with White recently after Wolf Eyes. “Get Up, Get Out” is the album’s first single, and it brings all the colossal raw energy that Vulgar has rightfully gained prominence for. At two and a half minutes long, the track is burst of shredding lo-fi guitars and ascending drums that could, all by itself, pump the blood in your veins. Its demand: “Get out now, time is wasted/ Run away and get free.” Do that below.
