WOMPS – New Music from Glasgow

Displaced Records’ first-signed band, WOMPS, drop their debut record Our Fertile Forever on 10 June, and I recommend giving it a listen. I spent a few hours and drank a few pints with this new band from Glasgow, “formed from the ashes of Algernon Dolls,” vocalist Ewan Grant’s last solo project, when I was at SxSW in March. Their first show in Austin won me over, and after talking with them on the Cheer Up Charlies patio and later over Skype (they were effusive, curious, modest) I was convinced that this is a band that deserves some international attention.

Check out my interview here and my review of their LP here.
