• warmer milks Let Your Friends In (CD, £11.95)

    label: Release the Bats

    THE CURRENT LINE UP OF WARMER MILKS IS PROBABLY NOT WHAT IT WAS YESTERDAY OR WHAT IT IS TODAY. HELL, THERE IS TALK OF IT CHANGING UP FOR NEXT MONTH. BLAME THIS ON AN URGE TO NOT RUN IN CIRCLES BUT IT'S HOW THINGS HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FOR THE LOOSE GROUP. FOUNDER MICHAEL TURNER STARTED WARMER MILKS IN 2003 AND HAS REFUSED TO GO BACKWARDS REGARDLESS OF OUTSIDE (OR IN-HOUSE) OPINIONS SINCE ITS INCEPTION. LET YOUR FRIENDS IN IS ANOTHER CHAPTER IN THE MORE BRASH, AGGRESSIVE SIDE OF WARMER MILK'S CATALOGUE. LEANING MORE TOWARDS SKATE PUNK AND BLACK METAL, THE GROUP TOUCH ON INTENSITIES LEFT BEHIND FROM RADISH ON LIGHT BUT WITH A MORE STREET ROCK-CUM-VOMITORIUM FEEL. THE FLIPSIDE TO THE FIRST TRACK IS A SPOOK GANG ROMPER, DRUMLESS YET STILL PUNCHING THE WALLS WITH A FORCE NO OTHER ROCK BAND CAN MANAGE. THE SESSIONS WENT DOWN IN SHELBYVILLE, KENTUCKY AT ROVE STUDIOS, HOME TO ENGINEER PAUL OLDHAM (SPEED TO ROAM, BONNIE PRINCE BILLY BAND, EX-BROADCAST CHOIR AND ROYAL TRUX). FEATURING USUAL WM ATTENDEES MICHAEL TURNER AND GREG BACKUS THE TWO LENGTHY CUTS ON "LET YOUR FRIENDS IN" ALSO BOAST THE ADDITION OF SHAWN DAVID MCMILLEN (AUSTIN, TX SOLO ARTIST, IRON KITE MEMBER AND FORMER MEMBER OF ASH CASTLES) ON GUITAR AND PAUL O. ON DEAD WAH GUITAR. WHERE THE GROUP HAS FLIRTED WITH HEAVY ROCK IN THE PAST, IT IS EASY TO SAY THAT GROUP NOW OWNS HEAVY ROCK.
