TRACKS OF THE WEEK – 11/25/2021 Edition

November 25. 2021 | By Wayne Jessup

Here at the Nest, we’re always thankful for bracing guitar noise, and this time out we’ll kick off in Melbourne, Australia with Pinch Points “Reasons To Be Anxious”. Process is the new LP, due out 3/18 on Mistletone in Australia, and on Exploding In Sound in the US.

“Billy” finds Chicago’s Horsegirl in league with Matador Records for their fourth single, a refreshing blast that wouldn’t be out of place in the label’s 91/92 glory years. Bonus points abound for the b-side cover of the Minutemen’s “History Lesson, pt II”.

Based in Toronto, Ben Cook’s Young Guv project has taken on a life of its own, with a double LP epic Guv 3/Guv 4 awaiting blastoff. “Lo Lo Lonely” is the first taste of Guv 3, due out 3/12 via Run For Cover Records and Hand Drawn Dracula in Canada.

Finishing up where we began in Melbourne, “Electric Whip” is the latest offering from Mod Con. The trio, (Erica DunnSara Retallick, and Raquel Solier), have a new LP Modern Condition, out now on Poison City Records.
