Cleveland chamber-pop group Wombs put out one of the best albums out of Cleveland last year with Unitopians. Now the album is appropriately getting a vinyl release from German label Ratio Records. It’s limited to 500 copies and its on clear smoky vinyl, order it from their store. The band will also be playing at the Happy Dog with Indiana bands husband&wife and Sleeping Bag on July 6th. Check out the flyer for the show and third track off Unitopians, “Protein Shake,” below.
I couldn’t have pictured a more fitting video for this haunting and incredible song, with footage from the 1942 animated war-time film Tulips Shall Grow. “God is my co-Pilot” is off their new album, Unitopians, which is now available on beautifully crafted handmade CDs. Head over to Wombs’ BandCamp to order the CD for $10, or download the entire full-length for free.
Check out the 80’s-tastic video for Cloud Nothing’s standout pop gem “Hey Cool Kid,” from the debut Turning On. The video was made by Wombs frontman, Ryan Manning, who also did the coma-inducing video for “Topiary Living.” Make sure you look a little bit closer during the chorus, really cool editing. The re-release of Turning On from Carpark is now up for preorder on Insound, DO IT!
Birthing out of towns and cities around Cleveland, OH, Wombs is four guys trying to put their complex sexual thoughts and masculinity into music on their second album, Unitopians. I got turned onto Wombs by their drummer, Jayson, who also plays for Cloud Nothings and Swindlella. Their second-effort definitely leans on the experimental side, but still screams a self-described “big pop” sound. “Topiary Living” is a drone-y opening for the stand-out track, “God is my co-Pilot.” It’s an absolute powerhouse on the album, with the first half showcasing Ryan Manning’s haunting falsetto leading right into a mid-song nuclear bomb. It’s reason enough to check out this band, along with the insanely creepy album art. Wombs, alongside Megachurch, will be opening for Herzog at their record release show at the Happy Dog on September 10th, SO GO SEE EM! Also, if you feel like entering a deep trance, watch the music video for “Topiary Living” below. Download Unitopians from their Bandcamp for free.
