Have some 'Strawberry Milk'
Darlene Shrugg is the point where loads of great artists meet. The Toronto-based outfit originally came together four years ago, but their live shows and recorded output has been sporadic. They also have little to no presence online, so keeping tabs on their movements has involved some extra leg work.
The project was put together by Maximilian Turnbull (used to be Slim Twig) and Simone TB, who for a decade, played in the band Tropics. U.S. Girls‘ Meg Remy joined up, along with Carlyn Bezic and Amanda Crist from electro-pop band Ice Cream.
Now, Fucked Up guitarist Young Guv convinced them to get in the studio and record some material. The result is an album, self-titled, coming out on Upset The Rhythm on 27 October.
‘Strawberry Milk’ is the first track they’ve shared from it. Don’t let the ambient beginnings fool you.

The cheapest we can afford to do this for is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time.
