Stupid Future
“Millions of Horny Boys” b/w “Traps of Gold”

For the last two years, Deathbomb Arc (rRope, Gang Wizard, Captain Ahab, Foot Village) has headed the Deathbomb Digital Singles Club. The club, of which I’ve been a proud subscriber since its inception, delivers exclusive digital singles straight to its adventurous members, each accompanied by its own website and artwork, all for just $10 a year (1 single/week the first year; 2 singles/month this year). The idea was to counter the depersonalized ritual of music downloading with a curated experience that’d provide in part the risk, excitement, and randomness of record store crate-digging, with singles ranging from Death Grips and Dustin Wong, to U.S. Girls and AIDS Wolf.

Deathbomb Arc has kindly given us permission to premiere the latest single in the club: “Millions of Horny Boys” b/w “Traps of Gold” by Stupid Future. The group, which features Kevin Hendricks (Male Bonding) on bass, Brian Kinsman (Foot Village) on drums/vocals, S. Cano (tik///tik) on electronics, and M.K. on vocals, shows just how adept they are at short, snappy no-wave that’s both noisy and minimalist, anxious and patient, all dirty fuzz, distorted vocals, and choppy instrumentation. And it’s fucking nasty. Check out both tracks at the single’s customized website, including some awesome animated artwork.

AND: I guess now’s the time to break the news that the club, after a strong two-year run, is ending. But don’t worry! For 2013, Deathbomb will replace the club with Deathbomb’s Super Secret Music Library. Rather than paying $10 for a subscription, all you need to do is place any order with Deathbomb — it could be for 1 tape or for 22 LPs… whatever you want — and you’ll instantly become a member with full access to their continually evolving digital library.

A library in place of a club. Good deal. Memberships will be available starting January 1, so start filling your cart! Meanwhile, check out all 108 songs from the soon-to-be-extinct club here and here.
