Aquarian Blood – “Savage Mind” (Stereogum Premiere)

Aquarian Blood is a duo featuring Ex-Cults’ JB Horrell and his wife Laurel Ferdon, formerly of Nots. They play frantic lo-fi punk that pleasantly reminds me of Times New Viking — though for music this urgently abrasive, pleasant might not be the right word. The band’s Record Store Day EP Savage Mind was one of the first records to be manufactured at the brand new Memphis Record Pressing, and its wild title track will absolutely rip your eardrums open. Listen.

The Savage Mind 7″ is out 4/18 (Record Store Day) on Goner. Aquarian Blood will be playing the Goner party at Beerland in Austin during SXSW this week. Some of the bill’s other highlights include Spray Paint, Nots, and the awesomely named Giorgio Murderer, who just put their new Record Store Day single “Lazer Lord” online.
