After a whole month in the van touring coast to coast across America, including stopping off for 16 shows at SXSW with the likes of Meatbodies, Dead Meadow and Night Beats then taking a plane to another van to tour the UK with Pulled Apart By Horses. Thee MVPs refuse to take the foot off the pedal and transmit to you the viewer a short film called 'RECEIVER', better known as army slang for a radio as well as the headset on an old telephone (remember them?!) The following is five songs beamed down to you via the competent and kinetic camerawork of Max Horn aka BARONXBONES.

Better known for his work in the hardcore punk scene, particularly with Frank Carter and The Rattlesnakes, Max has captured the band knocking five of their numbers out of the park. The mission statement was simple, make it look like it's from the 70s, 'make us look like those old Beat Club and Old Grey Whistle Test videos would you please' may or may not have been the $1million question here.

Behind the desk was long time collaborator to the band Theo Verney, whose recent production on the Slimelord 45 along with storming records by TRAAMS and Rad Fru proved that he was once again the perfect match for cutting these Most Valuable of Players. Perhaps the closest documentation to this is Ty Segall's 'Slaughterhouse' Live record.

On this EP the band meanders with conviction, improvises with direction and performs with the same dogged agility usually reserved for the likes of Thee Oh Sees & King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard. Tight as a drum and punching above any and all weights, for a song about being nervous before flights there’s an abundance of confidence.
