Album Review: Menace Beach- Super Transporterreum EP

Menace Beach
Super Transporterreum EP

This quick EP from Leeds based Menace Beach continues on the groups fuzz laden success from their debut Ratworld. These are five tracks that come in, show off their influences, get to the point and float out into the ether.

The title track was inspired by Liza Violets flu hallucinations, displaying a Pixies light vibe; their noise pop brings to mind tons of 90’s alt rock references from measure to measure. A light punk-ish Weezer tone is brought out for “Hey Toupe” while “Ghoul Power” gets angular. “The Line” is perhaps the most satisfying track with surf influences and a melodic ending.

The retro 90’s vibe of fellow Brits Yuck are the groups closest current parallel but for fans sick of reaching back to their worn out buzz bin, sunning on Menace Beach’s sonic shore provides a suitable alternative.
