Death Stuff, “Surprise Ex” (Monofonus Press)
“Surprise Ex” is a new track from Atlanta three-piece, Death Stuff. Opening on a riff that threatens to go all ‘Earth AD” the song, instead, roils into propulsive, whirling dervish post-punk before a full-on art-thrash spasm is abruptly euthanized after 2:30 or so. It’s noisy. It’s a bit exhausting. It reminds us of Girl Band, Running and early Butthole Surfers. It’s great. Get on it.
“Surprise Ex” is up now on the Death Stuff Bandcamp page – as is a fantastic set of demos from February – and looks to be set for inclusion on a self-titled release due later this fall on auto-correct darlings, Monofonus Press. I don’t know much more about Death Stuff, except that their first fbook post looks to be from last December and they like to repeat the words ‘death stuff’ on their page – a lot. Looking forward to more, more, more.
