Dub Thompson

The two faces in most of Dub Thompson’s promo shots are those of lost California boys Matt Pulos and Evan Laffer, who’ve just signed to Dead Oceans in order to release an eight-track LP titled ‘9 Songs’. And who knows, it’s possible one of the songs has two parts to it.

The product of the band’s working away with Jonathan Rado of Foxygen in – states its PR introduction – an “abandoned house”, the new record is coming out on 10 Jun. And speeding it on its way is lead single ‘Dograces’, in which the group mount a house party bandstand built from clanking, cantankerous chunks of falling scrap-punk and a taut garage-rock backboard.
