Noisy punk quartet Nopes will soon release its third full-length, «Djörk». The new album sees the Bay Area band “more than ready to bury one of the most disastrous years in recent memory in a cacophony of disaffection and feedback,” (one can only imagine this was written before the vents of January 6). To do so, they came up with a record that “is as unapologetically weird as it is offensively loud and noisy” while “bristle lyrically against work, class divisions, and the gentrifying soullessness of city life.” Below, you can catch the three opening tracks of «Djörk», namely, «Pocket Square Motherfucker», «Smile Room», and «Under the Leather».
«Djörk» is set for release on January 29 through Magnetic Eye on cd, digital, and vinyl formats. Pre-orders are available here.
Below, further recall the two previous full-length releases by Nopes.
«Stapler» was released on July 27, 2018, through Magnetic Eye and Discontinuous Innovation on digital and vinyl formats. The digital version is still available here.
«Never Heard Of It» was released on Octoberr 14, 2016, through Magnetic Eye on cd, digital, and vinyl formats. The digital version is still available here.
