Tonight On Local/Live: Head On Electric

Head On Electric

We’re pretty excited to have Head On Electric enter the Local/Live studio space as the band is set to release their next long-player on December 20th. It’s called Sleep Slaughter Sheep and will be released by our pals at Dusty Medical. Here’s what to expect from the album and their Local/Live session.

“Opening with the balls-out pop-garage yowl of the title track (reminiscent of the Kinks on a particularly nasty bender) and barreling through genre-bending tunes like the surf-psych “Up to You” and plaintive tunes such as “Through the Cobwebs,” before finishing with the echoey, dreamlike “Beside These Parts”, Sleep Slaughter Sheep marks Head On Electric as songwriters for whom boundaries are irrelevant, and musical history is paramount. They bring to mind Nuggets-era garage, the squalling melodiousness of the Jesus and Mary Chain, and early-’60’s British beat sounds, all at once.”

Tune into WMSE’s Local/Live at 8 p.m. to hear this squalling melodiousness. WMSE.org to stream live (or in the archives) or 91.7 FM on your radio dial.
