Dee Dee Dum Dum Girls and Brandon Brandon Welchez of Zoo Music just sent us “If You’re Gold, I’m Gone,” a track from Woven Bones’ four-song Minus Touch 12″ EP. The Austin trio roll into dark fuzzed-out primitive punk-inflected rock ‘n roll, listing Link Wray, Stooges, the Gun Club, the Troggs, the Damned, and VU as inspirations. Or, as Dee Dee put it:
[The song] continues in their tradition of mashing velvets’ grooves, stooges’ energy, early cramps drawl, and JAMC thud —- GRITTY, GNARLY POP TO WAKE THE DEAD!
Like the Stooges, they nail a potent, grinding half-speed crawl. But these guys are from the South, not Michigan. That makes a difference.
