Ausmuteants – “Boiling Point” (Stereogum Premiere)

Australian instigators Ausmuteants’ self-described “postpop” skree reminds me of the unhinged keyboard-infused bombast of Jay Reatard’s late, great Lost Sounds. So it only makes sense that Goner, the Memphis punk and garage rock label that helped launch Reatard’s career, is also releasing the latest Ausmuteants album. If teaser track “Boiling Point” is any indication, Order Of Operation promises to go off the rails in entertaining fashion. There’s a breathless fury in this song that matches Polysics at their most frenetic; it will likely be a thrill to witness Ausmuteants charging through this one on the North American tour that kicks off Saturday. Hear “Boiling Point” below.
