STNNNG Empire Inward – Vinyl LP (grey)
Pressing info : First pressing on grey splatter vinyl LP.
STNNNG (pronounced “STUNNING”) are from the Twin Cities of Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.
No, they do not sound like any of those three Minneapolis bands you can think of from VH1 Classic oversaturation or Rolling Stone’s retro-active fawning. They sound more like a lumbering giant laughing madly while tangled up in some barbed electric fence.
In other words, like heavy rock in the art-y/noisy Touch & Go vein.
Think punk rock tenacity with metal power, classic rock riffage, vaudevillian showmanship and the hyper-literate lyrics of a man seemingly possessed by a full encyclopedia set of subtly deranged characters.
Recorded and mixed april 2012 at Electrical Audio by Steve Albini.
DMM mastering november 2012 at Abbey Road by Alex Wharton.
