        04      Insomnia Scale
        05      Man Hours

Layered with spiked and twinkly guitars, off-kilter drumming, half-sung half-shouted
vocals, and regurgitating details that linger in the head for weeks and months, Aathens
have assembled a sincere and driving post-punk album. Harsh and precise, yet all the
time containing a rare fluidity not found in the oceans of post-punk records coming out
today. Dedicated to community, shared ideas/spaces, and their music, Aathens members
also play in London based Ice Baths and H.Grimace.

(Note : LP , 140 gram vinyl; Includes two art prints, lyric sheet, and download code)

Self-titled debut from Ice Baths. London-based Ice Baths take influence from cult
heroes such as Swell Maps, Television Personalities, Devo, US Maple -- all restless
energy and angled aggression. Lyrically there is a bleakness and darkness, though the
band prefer the listener to reach their own conclusions as to lyrical themes.
"They centre on feelings or imagery that can be dreary, dark, difficult and abstract.
We deliberately pass the buck to the listener to pick out certain moods or feelings,"
explains the band, which consists of Alex Ives, Thomas Cleall, Ed Shellard, and Jack
Davis.
