N-E-W: Sex Beet, Crystal Swells & Pains Of Being Pure At Heart

First off a track that's been on my to do list for a while. The band are called Sex Beet, a one man operation from London who is making excellent dirty pop music and is being rewarded for his hard work and good music with support slots around the UK with top dogs of lo-fi Wavves, Best Coast and Thee Oh Sees. Take this gem for the moment and keep an eye out here for new stuff that I understand is on the way. Sex Beet, a keeper for sure.

Sex Beet - Sugar Water Alt

Some fine punk rock going on here from Crystal Swells. Driving beats, plenty of feeback, riffage galore and angsty vocals. It sounds like Joy Division let loose and spazzed out, musically, as opposed to the funny dancing thing Ian Curtis used to do.

It’s a mess held together by a rusty guitar string, a scuzzy disaster of short songs but instantly likeable. Download the E.P for free here.

Crystal Swells - Burn It Electric Alt

And a new Pains of Being pure At Heart tune. The 7” is out December 14th
and an album out next March on Slumberland Records.
