Meatbodies announces LP for In the Red, and it will taste incredible

Meatbodies (formerly Chad and the Meatbodies) is Chad Ubovich, the bassist in Fuzz and guitarist in Mikal Cronin’s touring band. Now, the Los Angeles native has a self-titled album of his own, which will be released via garage and punk emporium In the Red later this year. Working in the same sonic landscape as his psych garage peers from San Francisco, Ubovich’s project harnesses a similar crunch and riffage as Ty Segall’s 2012 LP Twins, my personal favorite from Segall. And meatbodies are my favorite food, especially with some tangy barbeque sauce. Delicious.

Recorded in San Francisco with Eric “King Riff” Bauer — who previously produced records from Segall, Sic Alps, Mikal Cronin, Fuzz, Thee Oh Sees, White Fence, and others — Meatbodies also enlists friends like Cory Hanson from Wand, Erik Jimenez from Together Pangea, and Segall himself, all mixed by Chris Woodhouse. Before this meat-filled album is released on October 14, Ubovich will set out with Hunters and Purling Hiss on a North American tour. Until then, listen to the heavy jangles of lead single “Tremmors,” a blasted garage tune that coats Ubovich’s rousing harmonies in thick swaths of reverb. The full stream, album tracklist, and upcoming tour dates can be found below.
