Neon Windbreaker

Neon Windbreaker are from Toronto - the town Metz are from. Neon Windbreaker are releasing an EP recorded by Alex Bonefant - someone who formerly recorded Metz. The 'New Sky' EP is coming out on 28 October through We Are Busy Bodies - a label who formerly released Metz. Neon Windbreaker are in your face and energetic and noisy and loud and exciting and fun. Neon Windbreaker sound like Metz - and that's a good thing.

Check out 'Pink Suit' below.

Previously working under the name FNORDS for a little bit, FFNORDZZ is a dude from my home town of Plymouth who I've blogged about before but who I've never met and whose real name I don't know. His earlier tracks were experimental pop songs which I really liked so it's cool to see the arrival of a new EP.

Imagine a modern day Frank Zappa writing out and out pop songs and you're not far off. The result is something that could (hopefully fairly) be compared to Gross Magic in that it shares that kind of guitar-led, relatively lo-fi experimental pop sound. Lots of high-pitched guitars, catchy melodies, and even at times that hushed vocal. It's cool.

'Pop Stardom' is the name of the new EP. It's also the opening track and I supposed the 'most immediate' of the five. Listen to it below or download the whole thing on bandcamp. Apparently there should be another EP out this month too so eyes peeled etc.
