Premiere: Nucular Aminals - "Family Barber"

Nucular Aminals have a new record called Start from an End—that's the album cover up there—and we're premiering a track for you here. The new album is, in my opinion, the Aminals' best yet, a complete realization of their completely sideways approach to a rock song. Opening track "Family Barber" boasts a genie-in-a-bottle organ line and tripping 12/8 drums alongside needle-red guitar work. It's a firecracker-good song, a garage-rock tune that you don't want anywhere in your garage, as it would huff up all your paint and turpentine.

LISTEN:

You can hear all of the excellent Start from an End over on Bandcamp, and Nucular Aminals play a record release show on Saturday, November 3 at the Know.
