Milk Maid album ‘Mostly No’ out in July + UK tour
aaamusic | On 12, May 2012
‘Mostly No’, Milk Maid’s second album, follows hot on the heels of last year’s debut record ‘Yucca’ and finds frontman Martin Cohen cementing his reputation as a talented songwriter able to straddle the line between noise and pop whilst also expanding the sonic terrain the band covers. Adding swirls of Psychedelia to ‘Yucca’s’ crafted fuzz, the home-recorded ‘Mostly No’ explores a trans-Atlantic sound that at times simultaneously recalls the grand traditions of Manchester indie and Californian acid rock but which also sits alongside contemporaries such as Ty Segall, White Fence, and The War on Drugs.
As with their debut, the album was recorded onto a 16 track tape machine, a choice that Cohen makes because it means “using your ears more when you’re not staring at a computer screen” and prevents the temptation to constantly meddle on Pro Tools.
‘Mostly No’ will be released on 9th July 2012 via FatCat Records.
