Happy Release Day Warmduscher

Hot on the heels of their recent ‘Independent Breakthrough’ nomination at this year’s AIM Awards, storming of Later…with Jools Holland and assault on Glastonbury, where they were widely hailed as one of the bands of the weekend up at the Park Stage, South London scoundrels Warmduscher have today digitally released a 4-track remix EP which features tracks taken from their recently released, much-acclaimed fourth album, At The Hotspot.

The EP features remixes from Yard Act, Red Axes,Joe Goddard and Glok.

Talking about the EP, Warmduscher head-honcho Clams said:

There’s nothing better for the soul than taking whats yours, giving it to your friends and letting them chew it up and spit it back out in your face.  Something different, something weirder, something better, bolder, or even more beautiful! Ladies and gentleman we’ve got friends in high places, and these friends have chewed us up perfectly.  We hope you enjoy more of the same, only much more different, Warmduscher the remixes!!

Happy Release Day Warmduscher

Warmduscher today release their fourth album and first for Bella Union, At the Hot Spot!

Written over a period of over a year in lockdown, At the Hotspot, produced by Joe Goddard and Al Doyle of Hot Chip, takes the raucous energy Warmduscher solidified on their critically acclaimed 2019 release Tainted Lunch, and injects it with a slightly more polished, ‘80s funk sound, kind of like stumbling home to your squatted loft after a drunken night at the local disco. It’s crunchy on the outside, smooth on the inside, and might be the most immediately enjoyable music Warmduscher have ever graced us with.

“There was a lot of partying,” says Clams, laughing about the gestation of the album. “We were like, Aaarrggghh. We were just happy to be doing something and seeing each other. It was that weird energy, where you’re fed up and you’re kind of angry, but in a good way. We would spend like two nights a week writing, maybe once or twice a month, sometimes less.” This went on for about a year, with all the members bringing in their contributions, until it came time to record—which, in typical punk rock fashion, had its own set of obstacles to overcome.

The bulk of Warmduscher’s discography – the aforementioned Tainted Lunch, as well as 2018’s Whale City and 2016’s Khaki Tears – were produced by London stalwart Dan Carey, who was instrumental in helping the band hone their fuzzed out sound. Unfortunately, at the beginning of At the Hotspot’s recording process, Dan caught COVID, and the band found themselves having to leave their comfort zone and find a new producer fast. Luckily, they found two, under serendipitous circumstances.  “I was in the studio with Joe and Al of Hot Chip, doing an electronic project with Igor Cavallera of Sepultura and his wife, artist/musician Laima,” explains Clams. “When I got the message saying Dan couldn’t do the album, I was like, ‘Aw, fuck!’ Then Joe and Al were simply like, ‘We’ll do it!’ It was this really weird, happy accident.”

While At the Hotspot is still very much a Warmduscher album, with all its cracks and crevices oozing garage rock bravado, the production values buff out those jagged edges in a way only these two virtuoso producers could have pulled off. “We’re just really psyched to play this whole thing live now,” states Clams matter-of-factly. “And it’s a whole revamp—new label, new producers, new logo—new everything.”

Early acclaim for At The Hotspot

“Their best album yet… An excellent piece of squelchy low down dirty disco post punk funk that makes you want to boogie down all night.” Louder Than War – 9/10 (Album Of The Week)

“An album chock full of sumptuous smooth dance, funk, soul pumped through with plenty of upbeat, fun disco beats… Perfect for afters and a sure groove, At the Hotspot feels like you have entered the hottest party in the city and you are the coolest cat in the joint.” Gigwise – 9/10

“One of the best party bands around… It’s a raucous ball of energy of an album with an unrelenting party vibe that leaps out from every crevice.” NARC – 4 Stars****

“An album of disco-funk and lyrical irreverence… like Mac Demarco if he went full Beckett.” The Skinny – 4 Stars****

“Deliciously grotty… a carnival of different sounds and offbeat ideas.” NME

“Your host Clams Baker Jr adopts the sleazy preacher persona of Alabama 3 and Electric Six, while the rest of the band supply the growling groove on Live at the Hotspot, gonzo Krautrock of Eight Minute Machines and inexorable fuzz funk bassline on Hot Shot to colour the blaxploitation-influenced narrative. Baby Toe Joe replicates the dirty electro funk so gleefully plundered by early hip-hop artists and Wild Flowers offers 50 ways to tell someone they are not getting into the club.” The Scotsman – 4 Stars****

Warmduscher debut “Twitchin’ In The Kitchen” video

Warmduscher have today shared the suitably gonzo video for Twitchin’ In The Kitchenthe latest track to be taken from their forthcoming album, At The Hot Spot, their first for Bella Union, which is released on Friday April 1st 2022. The vinyl edition of the album will follow on July 1st 2022.

The band have previously shared Wild Flowers and Fatso from the album, both of which were A-listed at 6Music. Talking about Twitchin’ In The Kitchen, Clams Baker of the band said:

“Electric transmissions from the kitchens of twitch! Busy signals, threats of bodily harm, the pan-fried doom of grandma’s palpitations, a k2 carpet ride you can’t hop off of. Pick it up Jan & Jimmy, you’re all alone!”

The video, shot in and around Brixton, was directed by Niall Trask of The Kill Shop who has also worked on videos for Fat White Family, Ride and Working Men’s Club.

The band also head out on the road in spring of this year on a run of UK and European dates, including some already sold out rearranged shows and their biggest London show to date at The Forum.

“A song dedicated to taking the time to slow down and sniff the roses, turn off the computer and take in the sunshine, and embrace the battle of a sleepless day at the office from a night of beautiful carnage that you’ll always dream about.”
