Third Man is very excited to release the debut vinyl single from “boogie trance” trio Long Hots. What ink can we spill about this trio of Philadelphian rollers that hasn’t already been hyperbolied in year-end lists worldwide? Their Monday Night Raw cassette never left our deck since it’s release and we’re proud as all hell to release their first ever 7” of fried zoner boogie blues.
Long Hots are the true Philly phrenetic, an unpolished combo of fuzzed out and agitated guitar, undercurrent bass choogle and bare bones drums. Theirs are the kind of long-form weighty psych jams that bring to mind heroes like Moe Tucker, Stooges and Dead Moon. Tasteful, smart, fun and fresh for your late summery nights. A-side song Give and Take is 4 sturdy minutes of drone garage groove capturing the feeling of loose tension in between giving and taking and pushing and pulling. On the flip side, Nickel and Dime is a mucky pop song zeroing in on a dude unfit to pull his own damn weight and, from the sounds of it, not worth the trouble.
