Pity Sex – White Hot Moon (Released 29th April)

£15.99 – Indies Only colour LP & DL Code

Ann Arbor’s Pity Sex built the world of White Hot Moon, their second album, inch-by-inch. The band is using the foundation of 2013’s celebrated Feast of Love as the framework for something bigger, stronger, and altogether more monumental. Coming off of tours with Ceremony, Eskimeaux, and Colleen Green including a run in Australia the band dove into the studio with Feast of Love producer Will Yip to harness that momentum into an album to showcase Pity Sex’s growth.

And if White Hot Moon wears its ambition on its sleeve, that’s by design: the band looked to wide-screen albums by Yo La Tengo and Sonic Youth for inspiration in finding a bigger sound. That shows: Drake and Greaves spin huge webs of sound, anchored in shoegaze but branching off in a dozen directions, from fuzzed-out power-pop (Bonhomie) to shimmering balladry (Dandelion) and back again, while St. Charles and Pierce lock into step subtly counterintuitive rhythms and floor-shaking low-end.
