Milk Maid - Dead Wrong Out Today on 7’’ and Digital
“Full of distortion drenched vocals and slacker guitar lines ‘Yucca’ is a brilliantly messy thing.” 8/10 NME
“Pop songs twisted with an anger and unpredictability” ****Artrocker
“Pure pop primitivism” ***Q
Milk Maid have released the second offering from their highly regarded debut album, 'Yucca', today. 'Dead Wrong' is the excellent second single, which is available to buy from our web store.
With his band Nine Black Alps on indefinite hiatus, bassist Martin Cohen found he had time on his hands, recording at home Milk Maid’s debut album ‘Yucca’. The result is an album that might have come out on Creation Records in their 80’s heyday, recalling indie stalwarts like Comet Gain and marrying timeless pop hooks to the raw spontaneity of home recording, and sweet, sun-drenched pop hooks pitched against viscerally dark lyrics.
On new single ‘Dead Wrong’ (Suffering Jukebox/ FatCat, September 19) Cohen sings ‘You’re killing yourself to cut your arms off, you’re stabbing yourself in the gut’ and manages to make it sound like a lost Buddy Holly tune - albeit with the production values of a Sic Alps track!
