RADSOUND // SOTW: GET SOME – THE BRIAN JONESTOWN MASSACRE
Originally posted on Radsound
The single catching our ears this week is ‘Get Some’ from America by way of Berlin’s finest, The Brian Jonestown Massacre.
Released as the first taste – and beautifully understated notification – of the outfit’s upcoming new album, ‘Mini Album Thingy Wingy’, out 13th November, ‘Get Some’ is another discernible offering from the non-stop musical mind of Anton Newcombe.
Following the toned down spaced out approach of releases of ‘Musique de Film Imaginé’ and Anton Newcombe’s recent collaboration LP with Tess Parks, ‘Get Some’ diverges back to the classic psychrock stylings BJM are best known for. With vocals bordering on post punk realms, simplistically questioning lyrics – ‘you got to get that girl/are you going insane?’ – and slacker guitars driving, it’s further no nonsense genius from Newcombe and 4 minutes of endearing nebulous heaven.
