It’s with great pleasure that I can announce the release of Teardrop Factory's debut album Thrash In The Heart.

The Brighton based duo of Andy Ward and Tina Muat pick up from where they left last year’s excellent Topshop EP but expand their alternative 90s worshiping earworms with an added layer of noise. Grit and scuzz consume 13 pop songs about mermaids, electric ghosts, car crashes, geometry, surfing, eating insects, video games and lucid dreams.

There’s a home-spun charm to Thrash In The Heart that recalls kindred home-recording enthusiasts Guided By Voices; pop distorted via shitty microphones and self-destructed songs. In other places you may hear a clang and batter akin to Times New Viking or a 60s pop crooner buried under VHS fuzz. It’s coming straight at you, but shrouded in fog.

Made at home by the band and recorded in their bathroom, then mixed with Julian Tardo (Church Rd Studios / Bowlegs) and finally, mastered with MJ (Hookworms) at Suburban Home. ‘Thrash In The Heart’ will be available via Faux Discx on September 15th.

You can pre-order the BEAUTIFUL pink swirl vinyl exclusively from Faux Discx HERE. All orders (both pre-order and whilst stocks last) will come with either a special bonus CD of alternative versions of songs, or a copy of their previous Topshop EP 7”.

There’s also a standard black LP version, as well as a CD and of course, it’s available digitally. Either order from Faux Discx or use one of the pre-order links below:

Very, VERY pleased to announce that Faux Discx will once again team up with our buddies Negative Space, this time to release Sex Hands' excellent PLEH LP on 12” vinyl and digital download on July 28. Check out the video for ‘Pivot’ taken from the LP above, and also download the track for FREE here.

Sex Hands were formed by three childhood friends from the North Wales coast. After relocating to Manchester, Alex, Dylan and Edwin played their first show in 2011 on the Comfortable on a Tightrope stage at SFTOC, Salford. A month later Joe Logan of Waiters was recruited for his sweet bassy licks and amazing posture. From then on the band has been on a rock ‘n’ roll whirlwind, playing shows with the likes of Trumans Water one night and The Babies the next.

After their previous releases which include a split 7” with Daily Life (on the Icecapades label, which features artwork by Sex Hands own Alex Humphreys and Manchester artist Lucy Jones) as well as the self released mini album, Season One (Giant Hell), this is Sex Hands proper-real-life-hi-fi-fully-rockin’-full-length record on Faux Discx/Negative Space. With artwork by Manchester based artist Mike Redmond that compliments the bands rough around the edges, scorched pop rock, PLEH is 13 tracks of non-stop melody mashed fun time hug and roll hits.

Influences include The Clean, Pixies and Weezer. Sex Hands are not a garage pop band, they have never practiced in a garage. They never practice.
