TUNE That Fucking Tank - Chumbawambanger
Long-standing noise-rock duo That Fucking Tank return with a mini-slab of their first new recorded material since 2011’s TFT. Breaking off from the math-rock scene they helped create in their early days in the mid 2000s the new record gives a taste of a less bludgeoning, more groove-based, version of their baritone guitar and drums instrumentals.
Lead track Chumbawambanger takes its cues from postpunkers Dog Faced Hermans and The Ex, mixing an off kilter loop with afro-beat rhythms and effects-laden guitar played through three separate amplifiers. The layers of textures and melodies create a weighty power that owes more to congotronics than the metallic riffs and power chords of their noise-rock peers.
