Leeds-based twosome Menace Beach are streaming their debut album Ratworld in full ahead of its proper release on 19 January via Memphis Industries.
Ratworld is produced by Hookworms' MJ, our Producer Of 2014, and sees the pair traverse the world of grunge, fuzz-rock, psychedelia and pop. It's gorgeously abrasive, welding together huge tantrum-angst with pop gloss and a dash of danger. It's another prime example of the North's flourishing musical hotbed, Leeds.
To pre-order the record, head here and get an entire alternate version of the album, Drawlrot, on cassette plus download for free (whilst stocks last).
