And now for another taste of blown-out, cavernous, and beautifully dislocated pop music from Pittsburgh’s Wise Blood, courtesy of London label-cum-blog Transparent. This cut premieres today before the 7″ it’s featured on, which also includes lead single “Solo (4 Claire),” is released on November 22. “Rot My Brain Away” is a brief but immediately infectious jam that launches directly into a booming rhythm, a host of soulfully droning melodies, and music maker Chris Laufman’s smiling vocal delivery. It’s easy to become lost in the tightly packed layers of Wise Blood’s number, trying to catch every buried sample and distorted sound that bellows from its core. So, don’t be surprised if you let it play seamlessly over and over before you realize—or even care—that you’ve listened to “Rot My Brain Away” about 10 times in succession. You can nab your copy of the limited edition 7″ (only 300 pressed) here.
