Urochromes - Trope House - Out 5/31

We are excited to announce that Urochromes’ Trope House album will be out on May 31. On their first long player, Urochromes complement their catchy-as-fuck punk bangers with colorful experimental rock that choogles forth like the waters of the Mississippi River Delta where it was recorded. There are classic Urochromes chargers like first single “Hair So Big” and the catchy kiss-off “Millieux” that pair Dick Riddick’s concise and explosive playing with some of Jackieboy’s best sketches of uptight, paranoid characters on the edge. 

“Rumshpringa” plays it straight with a beautiful slow-burning riff and soul-searching lyrics (”When do I get my Rumshringa?... / I want to lean back in time like that Tower of Pisa”); it’s a new Urochromes classic where Riddick’s licks spark and lilt through the bridge toward the closing verse’s poignant refrain. The more experimental tracks, like the unhinged cover of Bikini Kill’s “Resist Psychic Death,” must be heard to be believed and show a band that gives not the slightest fuck about acceptance within the circles of boring cookie-cutter punk.

Combining the raw sound of Gary Wrong’s Jeth-Row Studios, where the album was tracked with the talents of longstanding Urochromes engineer Will Killingsworth (Dead Air Studios), Trope House delivers the most hi-fidelity Urochromes recording to date without sacrificing any spontaneity or power. Featuring artwork by John D Morton (Electric Eels). Mastered by Carl Saff. First Edition of 1000 vinyl records.

Urochromes Bio

Since their formation as a guitar & drum machine duo in a Hadley Massachusetts farmhouse in 2015, Urochromes have releases 3 7” EPs and a compilation. They have toured the United States, Canada and Europe each time with different instrumentation and lineup in addition to the core members of Jackie Jackieboy and Dick Riddick. At times, the live band has included members of GLOSS, Half-Hearted Hero and Digital Manure. They have played with a diverse list of artists like Chrome, Little Howling Wolf, and Show Me The Body. In 2017 Pitchfork commented in a review of their Night Bully EP that their “unpredictability lends them a rare star quality.” In 2019 the band will release their debut long player, Trope House and tour North America and Europe.

Track Name: Rumshpringa
You can choose what you want
but is choice enough of a choice for ya
I am young but I'll soon grow old
I still don't know

When do I get my Rumshpringa
I wanna lean back in time like that Tower Pisa
I wanna swim with you in fountain cherry coca-cola
I wonder when do I get my Rumshpringa

Could not remember what I wanted most
Was it my ghost or was it your ghost
Now that I'm thinking now that I'm really thinking
I think it’s both
Track Name: Hair So Big
Now you only see me now and again
but you remember way back when

Now I see you walking round with him now I see
Now I see you walking round with her
You used to do a lot of walking with me
And I know you remember how that feels
Now I see you wearing shades so dark
Now I see you wear that hair so big
you used to do a lot of walking around with me
and I know you remember how that feels

Now you got a lot of money to spend
Don’t got a lot of time to waste

Now I see you on my tv screen now I hear you on the radio
You used to do a lot of walking round with me
and I know you remember how that feels
Now they say you gotta get away now they say you bought a one way flight
You used to tell me baby we'd be alright and I know you remember how that feels

Now you got a lot of money to spend
Don’t got a lot of time to waste
