It feels like a long time, too long a time since we visited the raw, monster trucking, sexy terrain of Snack Family. It's a long time since the spirit of Captain Beefheart, Muddy Waters and Albert Ayler at his funkiest was channelled from beyond the gravel grave to such brutal effect. Snack Family are a London-based three-piece, active since 2011.
Their new EP, Belly, recorded by Nostalgia 77s Ben Lamdin and mastered by grammy-award-winning Brian Lucey (Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys) comes from, and hits you in, the pit of the stomach. This is music that gets right back to the heartlands, the heart and soul and meat of the matter, tough music that rewards you in the place where it hurts. Music for the times we're sweating through.
With original artwork by Drew Millward, Belly will be made available as a limited edition CD via Snack Family's Bandcamp store and as digital download via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify etc. Out 19th May 2014.
