London based Beech Coma Records have announced their next compilation, Vol. 3, due out March 9th. Beech Coma's first two compilations, released last year, featured some of my favorite tracks of 2014. Tracks by Lazy Day, Hella Better Dancer, Breathe Panel, Dan E Brown, Tuff Love, Abattoir Blues, and Redspencer garnered lots of play time at the Aimless Skylarking headquarters. Even today, months later, I still find myself reaching for those collections, revisiting a friend or discovering a new favorite I'd missed previously. I would expect Vol. 3 to be as meticulously compiled.
The first offering from the compilation is Bruising's melodic garage pop banger "Can't You Feel". The Leeds 2-piece have been on my radar after late last year's dreamy fuzzed up track 'Honey', or as the group described it, "butt punk". And if "Can't You Feel" is an indication of the quality of the upcoming Beech Coma compilation, we're all in for hell of a ride. I can't get enough of this track, stream Bruising's impressive opener below.
Bruising are Naomi Baguley and Ben Lewis from Hyde Park, Leeds. They formed late last year all because of a Perfect Pussy t-shirt, they've been self-recording in their bedrooms since then.
Beech Coma Vol. 3 will be released March 9th, 2015 on limited red cassette (£4), t-shirt and cassette bundle (£10), and digital download (£2). Pre-order now to guarantee your very own. Also, they do ship to the States. A more detailed track listing will be revealed soon.
