Self Defense Family – “Baby Mother Home” (Stereogum Premiere)

Last year, the New York post-hardcore rippers Self Defense Family released their impressive Heaven Is Earth album. And next month, on Record Store Day, they’ll follow it up on Record Store Day with a new four-track EP that has the impressive title The Power Does Not Work In the Presence Of Nonbelievers. The band had a fairly fascinating way of putting this one together: All the band members were in different locations, and they all put together sections of the songs, independently of one another, before sending them to singer Patrick Kindlon, who finished them. Among those four songs, there’s one 11-minute epic called “Deersong.” And there’s also the track below, a tingly and Slint-esque slow-burner called “Baby Mother Home.” Check it out:

The Power Does Not Work In the Presence Of Nonbelievers is out on 4/16, Record Store Day, on Bad Paintings. For updates and news, check out the label’s website and Facebook page.
