Archaic Women is the nom de plume of Toronto's Max Turnbull aka Slim Twig. On his debut release under this pseudonym Max rehashes deep psych-pop passages of moribund hipster lines into new a kind of post-something rock melange reminiscent of nothing up to this point... What is it? Like the carnivalesque soft-shoe monkey-dance sung through florid gums and skinny pants, breath all beleaguered with prescription scotch and thai stick, hypnotized by the pummeling custard of 60's tits... Kind of like if Slim Twig was covering his own songs in a phantasmagoric vacuum of subaqueous reverb and pre-cheesy organ plaque between the bridgework of the all-consuming rock and roll aesthetic.
Comes in a 18"x24" double-sided silkscreened poster by Andrew Zukerman and an insert by Jacob Horwood which is also silkscreened.
Copies are available at She Said Boom on College, Soundscapes and Good Blood, Bad Blood.
In the next couple of weeks you can expect the Brian Ruryk "Cycle of Fords" 6xcdr boxset and Thee Gnostics book & 2x cassette (featuring Gaven Dianda of the Saffron Sect).
