Reliably informed

Some people just find inspiration around every corner, and art rock ensemble Mush are a fine example of this given that their latest record Down Tools is their third full-length release in as many years. Granted, they’ve not been left wanting since their inception in 2015, with a particularly tumultuous political and social landscape from which they have been able to reap their stories. But at least the previous twelve months haven’t been a complete write-off, giving us a new album with some semblance of a positive vibe.

The twang-tastic, twisting grooves of lead single Get On Yer Soapbox sounds like what would happen if you put the DeLorean in a blender and, as a band known for their improvisational approach to music making, it’s unlikely that any live rendition will be a carbon-copy of the recorded version. That doesn’t matter, though, because it will still be mint.

The band pull up at Sunderland’s Pop Recs Ltd on Friday 30th September, where support comes from Wearside lads Roxy Girls. It’s all been a bit quiet in their corner for the past few months, but with a new drummer in place and a rise in support slots on the horizon, it might be time to see some new material coming from the punctual punks soon enough.

Mush and Roxy Girls play Pop Recs Ltd., Sunderland on Friday 30th September.
