Austin’s criminally underrated Chronophage are back with news of a new album on the way and I couldn’t be more excited. The band balances new wave nuances with the building blocks of post-punk. Their records have steadily gotten a bit more studio sheen and this eponymous LP seems to follow that trend, sounding as polished as they ever have on “Black Clouds.” The song slips through the crimped yet catchy wake of Elvis Costello and Robyn Hitchcock. They crash between the swells of Eligible Bachelors-era Monochrome Set, finding a new pop opulence on the new single, but rolling their ruffles in mud as if Greg Sage were standing in for Bid on the mic. The new record finds them bump up to Post Present Medium in the US and Bruit Direct in Europe. The S/T LP is out June 3rd.
