137 – Death From Above 1979, Tomahawk, Xiu Xiu and Black Spiders

Steve and Remfry start proceedings this week by going into a very strange tangent inspired by the Sky Arts documentary Allen V Farrow (sorry about that). In the news, Vinyl sales look set to eclipse CD sales in the UK since 1987 and Roger ‘Man of the People’ Daltrey is releasing his own branded Champagne. 
New releases reviewed this week include Is 4 Lovers by Death From Above 1979, Tonic Immobility by Tomahawk, OH NO by Xiu Xiu, the self-titled album by Black Spiders and Serj Tankian’s Elasticity EP

RR26 Death From Above 1979 – You’re A Woman, I’m a Machine

Steve and Remfry dissect the 2004 debut album from Canadian rock duo Death From Above 1979. Just catching the tail end of the Garage rock revival, ‘You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine’ was released to very positive reviews, particularly amongst the indie press (5/5 on Alternative Press, 10/10 on Drowned in Sound, **** in Mojo and Uncut). The boys discuss their experiences seeing Death From Above live, their split, their resurgence and comeback almost a decade later.
