Dinked #48 comes in the form of an exciting debut album from new Leeds-based band Thee MVPs. This band have quite the buzz: they have already played over 350 shows internationally across the US, three UK tours, a ridiculous 17 SXSW shows in 6 days including Desert Daze and Levitation, and supported the likes of Twin Peaks, Ty Segall, Dead Meadow and more. This hotly anticipated debut, Science Fiction, drops 29th May via Eeasy records!
Recorded themselves and mastered in Chicago with Shellac’s Bob Weston, this record features 10-tracks of deceptively infectious, riff-driven motorik grooves and beat heavy, high energy blowouts. Each delivered with a sardonic smirk, these new tracks demonstrate the quartet’s ability to renew themselves within the kraut/punk/garage/whatever-rock genre in which they operate, and to expand on a sound that is hook heavy whilst also remaining challenging and innovative.
The band describe the new album as part-concept. Speaking about the themes behind the record, they say “the album ties in references and homages to Sci Fi with the modern millennial difficulties all of us face as we move away from our youth.”
The Dinked Edition is limited to only 350 copies with an exclusive label sticker, a super exclusive “super-on-the-nose-sci-fi-warpspeed-hyperspace” splatter blue vinyl and a Dinked X MVPs slipmat!
