Merchandise - "Begging For Your Life / In the City Light"


I'm pretty sure that before and after every festival I went to in 2013 I shamelessly hyped Merchandise on this blog and to all my friends, and it looks like I wasn't the only one - the Florida post-punk quintet have just announced they've signed to esteemed indie label 4AD. They're starting off their partnership with a fourteen-minute (yes, though if you're already a Merchandise fan that shouldn't be surprising) single called "Begging For Your Life / In the City Light," which you can hear a four-and-a-half minute sample of now; even in abbreviated form, all that sax, discordant guitar, and brooding vocals from Carson Cox are likely to destroy your brain. Check it out - you can nab the full-length jam tomorrow digitally, or February 25 on a clear 12" - and stay tuned.
