Tickets are now available for Flat Worms at The Garage.
From their early days playing together Flat Worms found a compatibility and sense of purpose that has guided them through several singles, an EP and two full-length LPs. With most of their recordings made with Ty Segall at his home studio, the contrast between the band’s native emphasis on immediacy and the adventuresome signal paths and possibilities that mark Ty’s productions has given extra texture to Will’s psyched-out guitar leads and the muscular flex of Tim and Justin’s rhythm playing. With their most recent releases, Antarctica and The Guest 7″, their sound tilted further toward its virtual intent, with Steve Albini engineering at his Electrical Audio facility.
Live in Los Angeles is Flat Worms’ first release for Frontier Records, whose seminal punk releases have always been an influence for the band. On Live In Los Angeles, the West Coast post-punk sound blooms eternal, outside of time, speaking as urgently to today as it always has. Drawing tracks from their releases on Volar, Castle Face and GOD?, Live In Los Angeles is an overwhelming expression of Flat Worms’ democratic goals, with the three members thrusting forward together with the audience in a space infused with shared energy. This allows the dark humors in their songs to shine more brightly, and their intentions as a social band, to entertain and to move bodies, become clear over the course of eight uncompromising performances.
