stream Tundrastomper's new EP "Clean It Up" via Post-Trash

we're thrilled to be sharing a full stream of Tundrastomper's new EP Clean It Up via the incredible folks at Post-Trash today. Clean It Up finds Tundra in full go-mode, full of their chaotic brand of beauty, never calm but always fascinating.

Dan Goldin says: From the first shuffling moments of album opener "Sweet Baby Boy" to the close of "Patch It Up," the band opt out of playing it "cool," instead indulging the listener (and themselves) with a blizzard of convulsing rhythms and guitars that cut directly through the tangled splendor. Sonic freakouts abound, and every song takes its own approach to their madness. "Sweet Baby Boy" has a collapsing free jazz vibe, dropping in and out of technical bliss (seriously, the rhythm section is unbelievable), switching between tempos and movements in the blink of an eye. "How Very Nice" opts for a deranged sort of pop approach, grinding out liquid rhythms and elastic riffs with a sunny vibe, occasionally taking an opportunity to smash everything directly into a wall or two."
