Recorded in vocalist Nic Offer’s Brooklyn apartment, the eighth album from !!! (Chk Chk Chk) distributes AAA party passes to Angus Andrew (Liars), Maria Uzor (Sink Ya Teeth) and Cameron Mesirow (Glasser) – all of whom feature within Wallop‘s liner notes.
As well as a healthy dose of lyrical humour (“We wrote every single note and chord of every single song/ Lived through every stupid argument about being legit”), Serbia Drums boasts an earworm hook (toy piano?); Rhythm Of The Gravity barges in with The The-channeling vocals; UR Paranoid chronicles drug-fuelled ‘moments’; and This Is The Door is a jubilant conga line punctuated by brass stabs with Meah Pace on sassy vocals.
These bossy beats are comin’ atcha ready or not, so just shut up and dance! This !!! record packs a Wallop.
Wallop by !!! is out September 6 via Warp.
