November’s ‘Local Pick’ on the Brighton Album Chart Show
Album – Artist – Song/Video – Label
Employees of Ice Cream,Emperors of Ice Cream, The Sunshine Song – self release
For November’s Local Pick, we’ve chosen the brilliantly named “Emperors of Ice Cream” (though possibly nicked from a 1922 Stephen King novel) and their album “Employees of Ice Cream”, which is available now via their Bandcamp and other online retailers.
The post-punk four-piece formed in 2014 and headed to Electric Brighton to record this album, with producer Mark Roberts at the helm.
Crashing together post-punk, jazz and psychedelic influences, there is a sense of camaraderie in their sound which guitarist/vocalist Karl Waugh describes as “a grand melting pot of what all of us listen to”. Check the hectic video to single The Sunshine Song and give them your appraisal.
