Spit Shake Sisters have long been favourites round these parts, being one of the first Brighton bands to take their inspiration from the West Coast garage/psych rock of Ty Segall and Thee Oh Sees, so much so that they made our best of 2013 round-up as one of the best discoveries of the year.
The prime slab of garage rock that is ‘Jesus is a Homewrecker’, released today through Teen Creeps, starts with two minutes of verse-chorus, both parts appearing to vie against each other to see which will be more memorable. Just as it starts to get familiar a crushing mid-song breakdown/freakout/sing-along completes the most thrilling four minutes they’ve committed to tape. ‘Jesus was a Homewrecker’ will go down a treat at one of their sweaty, loud and brilliant live shows.
They play the Cowley Club on 5 April and have just been announced for the Teen Creeps Stage at Camden Crawl later that month. On this form you’d be crazy to miss them.
