Naomi Punk to release new album “Yellow” on August 4. Share two tracks today – “Tiger Pipe” and “Chains”

On August 4, 2017 NAOMI PUNK will release a new Double LP on Captured Tracks. It is called Yellow. The self-referential musical language of The Feeling (2012) was wrung out into the starker live-informed Television Man (2014); On Yellow this language becomes a means not an end. The Olympia, WA band incorporates a bricolage of windy field recordings, emulsive synthetic woodwinds, and bizarre live sounds into their patented punk sound; grinding, wobbling, orbital, thrashing, to a new thesis on the meaning of sounds. Punk music can be a strange, imaginative carnival of moods, a soundscape to teleport, to pass out radical ideas, not an aesthetic stylesheet, according to this band.


The single “Tiger Pipe” demands the user, “Destroy All Money”; the drums are muted, and we hear trio-leader Travis Coster believing in the power of sounds to take you into the stars, above Earth and its problems, “Out on a wire.” This is a kind of new age – pop – Royal Trux impression that is truly weird and sounds like no other single we’ve heard lately.

Chains” brings us back to the band’s origin habitat of raw heavy punk  that isn’t distorted like metal or punk really, but just feels like death. Androgynous deadpan vocals roll over a heavy low tempo punk grind: “Ecology … doesn’t follow your system … so I’m chasin … chasin my dreams.”
