Another Positive Auspice, Menace Beach.

If Where I Come From were an introduction rigorous as a Northern thud to the ribcage, then Fortune Teller from Leodensian duo Menace Beach is a rather more auspicious, so too harmonious reminder as to Ryan Needham and Liza Webster’s songwriting synergy. Nestor Matthews brings pulsating, corporeally punitive drums to proceedings as guitars scuzzy as The Cockpit’s icky flooring scaffold the song in a gritty sort of glory. Factor in metallic, strangely mechanical synth riffs and the epicentral duo’s faintly androgynous commingling of vocal abilities, and you’ve a lo-fi masterpiece that has more minutiae to it than most shorelines do grains of sand. Difference is you’ll actively want this one stuck in your hair for weeks on end…
