Pinch Points - Process LP (Yellow Vinyl)
Pinch Points - Process (Exploding In Sound/USA)
This is the yellow vinyl version that is already sold out from the distro so once these are gone, they are GONE for good.
The hotly-anticipated new Pinch Points album Process was recorded with Anna Laverty (Courtney Barnett, Nick Cave, The Peep Tempel) and is a momentous leap forward into full-force post-punk empowerment, with 10 songs engaging with the fractures in so-called ‘Australia’ -- from catastrophic bushfires, gendered violence, mental health struggles to First Nations incarceration and deaths in custody -- with clear-eyed directness, along with an uncommon nuance and empathy.
As the album title suggests, Process is a commentary on structural collapse; the systemic failures and baked-in inequalities that are ravaging ecosystems, the mental health system, the gig economy workforce and all aspects of our lives. The title Process also recognises the emotions processed and channelled in the songs, as a collective expression of empathy and shared grief. A true collaboration, finding consensus from the experiences of four individual humans, Pinch Points embody music-making as an act of friendship and community, upholding the band’s shared belief in the music scene as a real-life platform for connection, strength and solidarity.
Nothing is normal -- but PINCH POINTS are here.
We Say in RIYL Form:
Turbo post punk, mental health hang ups, killing your Idles with kindness, punk pep talks, salty licks (the opposite of sugar coated), a positive reinforcement that the world is in fact a pretty f*ucking terrible place, ACAB anthems, Aussie scream therapy, Ruts-y rambunctious real talk punctuated with the occasional guitar solo, and right rippers.
