Austin postpunk trio Spray Paint made noise last year with their album Clean Blood, Regular Acid. They’re already ready to follow it up with a new album called Punters On A Barge. And rather than cleaning up their frantic, withering sound, they’ve made things even noisier and messier on their new track “Day Of The Rope.” It’s a scuzzy, stumbling scum-rock churn that reminds me of Big Black, right down to the rickety drum-machine beat and the dense lyrical sarcasm: “I understand you don’t like technology, maaaaan! I get it!” It’s a fun song, and you can hear it below.
Punters On A Barge is out 6/1 on Homeless.
