Greasy Mind is a new single from Slug, the band formed by Ian Black, previously bass player with Field Music. Supported by former band-mates Peter and David Brewis, along with Andrew Lowther and Rhys Patterson, Black is carving out a sound that, while leaning to a degree on the angular art-rock of Field Music and its already existing offshoots The Week That Was and School of Language, forges an organic character of its own through earthier lyrical tendencies and a brief guitar freak-out that you probably wouldn’t find in the clean-cut world of Slug’s sibling groups. The video for Greasy Mind, meanwhile, is a riot of colour clash and VHS tracking fuzz that might forever burn cyan on your retinas if you stare at it for too long.

Ripe is available for preorder on white coloured gatefold vinyl (with a download code) and CD direct from the band - HERE. You can also pre-order from iTunes.
