Passion Pusher – Bury Me Next to My Father

bury In amongst the other good things happening on the internet over Christmas which probably went largely unnoticed because we were stuffing our faces with turkey and pie was this, a new album by Passion Pusher on Cath Records.

As I mentioned when I first wrote about them, Passion Pusher release new music at a frightening pace. I first covered the band only a month ago, and since then they’ve already rattled out four new EPs. Yes, four.

Anyhow, one of those is what you could vaguely describe as a first formal release – Bury Me Next to My Father on Cath Records.

It’s actually a six-song, eight-minute release which I guess you would best describe as an EP, with quotation marks over the ‘extended’ part. Six songs is an EP though, no matter what the length, and frankly Passion Pusher’s songs are never that long anyway.

It’s still sloppy guitar music which runs the gamut between harsh garage rock, jangle, slacker pop and lo-fi borderline-dreampop, which leaves the band somewhat isolated in Edinburgh and makes their collaboration with Cath all the more sensible.

If anything these guys remind me a little of Waylon Thornton, who I wrote about yesterday, not in their sound in particular, but in the fact that they release all sorts of stuff all the time, and you basically have to accept that for all most of it will be ace, there will always be some stuff you won’t be that into. It doesn’t matter, though. There’s bound to be something new in the next couple of weeks!

One of the most promising new bands to emerge in Edinburgh in the last year, if you ask me.
