These British DIY kids and their punny band names! Like Joanna Gruesome, Alex Chilltown is an affiliate of the excellent UK label Art Is Hard. Chilltown’s latest single “Cwtch” — Welsh for a close hug or a safe place — is coming out as an extremely limited edition 7″ (only 25 copies) through Art Is Hard’s Hand Cut Record Club. Thankfully, the internet is infinite, so you can listen to “Cwtch” on repeat right here. And you should: It’s minimal, melancholy stuff that sounds gentle and noisy all at once.
Order the single here if you never travel far without a little Art Is Hard.
