Welsh lo-fi-fuzz pop wizards Mowbird are releasing a compilation album called One-Offs, available only at live shows, it celebrates five years the band and features singles, demos, one-offs and four previously unreleased tracks.
Mowbird have long been firm favourites around these parts and their predilection for fuzz pop, fused with parts surf-rock, slacker indie and some garage punk nuances has served up sublime fun filled blasts of scuzzy, charming, soul-consuming guitar jams. Taken from the One-Offs compilation and recorded in the same session as their excellent debut record Islander, ‘Audrey, Are We Lost?’ captures everything that is wonderful about Mowbird. A hyperactive, gritty and surf inspired garage-rock belter, ‘Audrey, Are We Lost?’ is just over two-minutes jammed packed with energy, poppy sheen, riffs, catchy hooks and some stunning organ work – something that really marks their sound out as something very special indeed. Magnifique!
While One-Offs is currently limited to 50 copies and only available at live shows, you can stream it on their Bandcamp page. Perhaps one day, the album will be available digitally, here’s hoping.
