ALBUM RELEASE // Dub Thompson ‘9 Songs’ Out Now Worldwide, Tour With Ought Starts End Of June




Today Dub Thompson‘s new album 9 songs is out worldwide! The band, Matt Pulos on guitar and Evan Laffer on drums, recorded the album with Foxygen‘s Jonathan Rado at a rented house here in our hometown of Bloomington, Indiana. With no one song on the album the same, the two simultaneously draw from many predecessors including Can and Kraftwerk, Big Black, Pere Ubu, and more.

In honor of the release we are letting the band take over @DeadOceans on Twitter all today. To follow “Dub Oceans” click here.

Get the new album via iTunes, your local record store, SC Distribution, and through Amazon.

Critics praise the new album:

“Whole generations of basement-tape shenanigans are baked into their lurching, overdriven sound, alternatingly stripped-down and blown-out: Big Black, Liars, the Fall, and even the Burning Sensations’ version of Jonathan Richman’s “Pablo Picasso,” whose ropy bass line and sardonic delivery directly inform “Dograces”‘ Roto-Rooter blues”

SPIN

“There is so much going on here — old-school funk, the Red Hot Chili Peppers before they sucked, Tame Impala, Kraut, trip-hop beats, convenience store muzak, old psychedelic records in the dollar bin at your local record store”

Flavorwire

“throat-grabbing, shit-kicking intensity”

Line of Best Fit

“It’s an impressive bit of music that hints at the band’s scrappy inhibition, and its allure all but comes from how unserious Dub Thompson take themselves”

Pitchfork

The Dub dudes start their tour with Ought [Constellation] at the end of this month in Scottsdale, Arizona at Pub Rock.
