Methyl Ethel: ‘Everything Is Forgotten’
LP / CD / Digital Out Now
“A mind brimming with ideas and inspirations” – FasterLouder (9/10)
“One can only stand back and gawp at the strength of Webb’s songwriting here, the talent pouring from these tracks… a tight, exciting, stonker of an album.” – Loud & Quiet (8/10)
“By turns weighted and buoyant, half darkness and half shimmering light.” – DIY ****
Today sees the release of Everything Is Forgotten, the new album by Methyl Ethel.
Methyl Ethel’s second full-length, the record is a vivid, compelling and mysterious creature, all curvaceous pop nuggets and enigmatic currents. Written and recorded by Perth-based frontman Jake Webb, it was brought to life by acclaimed British producer James Ford (Arctic Monkeys, Foals). The pair’s collaboration has infused Methyl Ethel’s shoegaze dream-pop palate with electronic and polyrhythmic flourishes, allowing Webb’s keening, gender-fluid vocals and searing poetry to take centre stage.
You can find all details on the release, along with international tour dates, here.
Everything Is Forgotten is out now on 4AD, available on limited edition magenta vinyl, standard black vinyl, CD and all digital platforms.
