We’re happy to announce that Nots have a new album coming out this Autumn. Titled ‘Cosmetic’ the record follows last years debut album ‘We Are Nots.’ Due out on September 9th, Stereogum are premiering a new track ‘Entertain Me:’
“Entertain me/ Tell me what you see,” Hoffman bursts out snarling after a minute and a half of knotty, incendiary build-up. The abrasive front is nothing new for the band, but it’s never sounded this vital. Hoffman plays guitar like her strings just caught fire and she’s maneuvering around the flames; her tone is so blistering it sounds like she’s plugged into a tube amp made out of a refashioned airplane turbine.
Yet it’s Alexandra Eastburn’s synthesizer work that truly steals the show. She was the secret weapon of the band’s debut, elevating We Are Nots with her squirming, hostile textures, and here manages to somehow be an even more prominent force despite taking a more subtle approach. At seven minutes, “Entertain Me” is the almost thrice the length of most of Nots’ previous output, but every moment of it is essential.”
Nots t-shirts are available to purchase in our emporium as well as copies of their debut LP which is are available here.
