Wolfmanhattan Project – “Summer Forever”

A nice surprise this morning in the form of a new track from Wolfmanhattan Project. Wasn’t expecting anything new from this team up of Mick Collins (Dirtbombs), Kid Comgo Powers (Gun Club, Bad Seeds), and Bob Bert (Pussy Galore), but they’re back at it after their debut LP from last year. “Summer Forever’ slides in on a queasy, greasy guitar vibe that sees Mick and Kid trading riffs. There’s a powerful wave of overindulgence wafting off the track – an endless summer that may or may not be a good thing in the end. It seems its the end of the world as we know it but the beaches aren’t closed and there’s still time for a dip before the bloodshot sun dips below the horizon. When the lineup includes legends like these, there’s always some high expectations, but they continue to come through with a dose of edge-of-the-apocalypse fun. Summer Forever And Ever is out soon on In The Red Records.

Wolfmanhattan Project – “Silver Sun”

Plenty to love in a band that comes packed with Bob Bert (Sonic Youth, Pussy Galore), Mick Collins (Gories, Dirtbombs) and Kid Congo Powers (Gun Club, The Cramps, Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds) and the band makes good on more than their past reputations with the single “Silver Sun.” Sounding like one of my favorite Mick Collins records, Ooey Gooey Chewy Ka-Blooey!, his Dirtbombs ode to bubblegum, the song’s not bogged down in the grit and garage blast that could easily come from any of the players involved here. It sparkles and swings. Its a sunshine strummer with a popcorn beat built for dancing. This one’s been building for quite a while, but seems to have dropped out of space with a release tomorrow. If the melted syrup choruses and laconic harmonies on this track aren’t enough to sell ya then I give up.
