chemtrails Calf of the Sacred Cow (LP, £16.75)
Punk Slime Recordings are proud to present the debut album from London based Chemtrails. Founded/fronted by romantic and musical partners Mia Lust and Laura Orlova, they make catchy, fuzzy, lo-fi pop music, somewhere between The Pixies, Black Lips and Blondie, with lyrics that are surreal yet earnestly meaningful. Chemtrails made their debut in September 2016 with the single ”Aeons”, and have since released two EPs. The first, Love in Toxic Wasteland, tells stories of savagery and spirituality in a post-apocalyptic world, with melodic songs built out of raw, heavy guitars and dreamy, reverb-soaked Farfisa body. The second EP, Headless Pin Up Girl, has a more pop-up feel to it, with Mia Lust's lyrics getting deeply personal as she openly reflects on her place in the world as a transgender woman. The debut LP sees the band exploring wider territory and includes some of their most unusual psychedelic power-pop songs yet, as well as their heaviest, most aggressive garage rock numbers.
