I’ve got a friend, a guy deep enough in the garage-rock universe that he hosts a community-radio show where he just plays fired-up rock songs from bands I’ve never heard of — who considers the Gotobeds the best rock band in the world right now. And the Pittsburgh punk band does seem to be on the way to big things. Later this year, they’ll release the excellently titled new album Blood//Sugar//Secs//Traffic. We’ve already posted the early track “Real Maths/Too Much,” and now they’ve also shared another one called “Brass Not Rash.” As with the last song, the Gotobeds play terse, Wire-style postpunk riffage with the same beery DIY abandon that, say, Diarrhea Planet bring to their AC/DC homages. Check it out below, via Noisey.
Blood//Sugar//Secs//Traffic is out 6/10 on Sub Pop.
