The Foetals – Meet The Foetals
–– DEBUT LP OUT TODAY ––
Punk Slime Recordings are proud to present the Manchester based lo-fi pop act The Foetals, the new project from Jolan Lewis (the frontman of The Pink Teens, fka Temple Songs, who also plays inFrancis Lung’s (ex WU LYF) band as well as Aldous RH). The Foetals’ upcoming debut LP Meet The Foetals, is out today via PNKSLM Recordings on limited edition 12″ vinyl and as a special edition deluxe package.
Meet The Foetals was recorded by Jolan himself in two days at his own smallstudio in the outskirts of Manchester, trying to find a middle ground between perfect 60’s pop records and the inept DIY sound of American private press LPs – think The Bachs and The Patron Saints playing Paul McCartney covers.
PNKSLM Recordings will be donating the label’s share of the profits from the vinyl edition of Meet The Foetals to Cancer Research UK.
“the latest of his tunes to convey a sense of the 60s so accurately that you wonder if he even created them at all, or just found a load of unreleased garage rock gems down the back of Shel Talmy’s sofa” – NME
“60s Americana with a northern English twist, The Foetals blend the kicked-back garage pop of The Beach Boys with The Beatles’ sharp harmonies” – Noisey
“a classically-cut style of songwriting that goes way beyond the fuzzy aesthetic” – DIY
““Fine” straddles the line between bleary, blown-out garage rock and sunny, tailored ’60s pop with particular finesse” – Stereogum
“Combining classic rock’n’roll with garage pop sensibilites, The Foetals are showing just how “Fine” everything can be.” – The Line of Best Fit
