Asian Babes/Future Glue - SexxXx Tape
SexxXx Tape is a cassette release, but purchase includes digital download and access to Bandcamp mobile app. The tape includes four concise punk/garage nuggets from Asian Babes, and one delicious nearly 8-minute atmospheric, lo-fi, surfy contribution from Future Glue. The contributions from Asian Babes have all of the immediacy and excitement of well executed garage punk, with a good dose of fun, while Future Glue is the perfect ending - channeling Link Wray after a handful of uppers and a few shots of stock bourbon. I've provided several songs below, but you can stream the entire sordid affair at the Bandcamp link below.
I realize that you've come to expect a bit of background about the bands, but you don't really think I'm going to put "asian babes" into a search engine on a work computer, do you? All I can tell you is that the lead singer of Asian Babes is Kate Thorburn of Glasgow band Charles of the Ritz. Future Glue is a less scary proposition: They are a five-piece from Glasgow that would appear to have a bright future.
