*Big News! As of June 2015, the LP has been repressed and the first batch of that new pressing is Loser edition, colored vinyl available while supplies last!*
Hey! A new Mudhoney record! On Sub Pop! And we couldn’t be happier. As Matt Lukin remains retired, there’s a new face on the bass: Mr. Guy Maddison (formerly of Bloodloss and Lubricated Goat). Guy joins the rest of the Mudhoneys (Mark Arm, Steve Turner and Dan Peters) on this, their 6th full-length studio album. Here in the post-post-rock era, as it’s become more and more difficult to channel the prime mover, the proto-rock of Since We’ve Become Translucent is more liberating/important/relevant than ever. Gloriously unrepentant, defiant and heavy; Mudhoney are back. And, Since We’ve Become Translucent is the sound of a band rebuilt and revived. It’s a record that’s gonna soothe your soul, and maybe even save it.
Musicians: Mark Arm, Steve Turner, Dan Peters, Guy Maddison, Wayne Kramer (bass on ‘Inside Job’).
