FIRST LISTEN: PORRIDGE RADIO / BITCH
Since the release of the sublime Pasta, Rice and Other Fillers was released back in 2016, Porridge Radio have established themselves as one of the most exciting bands in the country. 'Bitch', taken from Bowl Cut Records new compilation Dead Trim, sees singer Dana Margolin step away from the full band leaving just an electronic beat and gentle synths to protect layered delicate vocals. "Don't look at me. Don't talk to me. Don't touch me." Margolin sighs.
Dead Trim places Porridge Radio along side a host of DIY bands from the UK and Beyond, including Charmpit, Garden Centre, Neurotic Fiction and The Hipshakes. Released on February 2nd, the compilation celebrates one year of the Leeds based record label and coincides with it's birthday all-dayer at Wharf Chambers on Saturday 27th of January.
