Something for the Weekend #16 Transept

Monday sees the arrival of album number two for Norwich electro drone trio Transept and I managed to pick up an early copy to see me through the weekend. Their first album was a highlight of 2011 and they seem to have developed from their impressive support slot for Godspeed You! Black Emperor at the UEA. Aside from winning unlikely album title of the year (I've seen them) Buff As Fuck balances delicate folky twiddles with droning synths, whilst first single Muscle Beach (below) builds like Fuck Buttons backed by a marching band. An interview with the band and a stream of the new album can be found HERE.

[VO fact: the unique vinyl artwork was printed by Norwich Owl Jo Stafford.]
