Our new EP ‘My Life As A Trashcan’ is available now from Jigsaw Records (jigsaw-records.com). It’s our longest EP so far with 8 songs at around 18 and a half minutes and was recorded/mastered by Patrick Crane/ DC at Thousand Island Pizza. Two songs from the EP can be heard via our soundcloud account:
Here’s an excerpt of a review from the blog ‘A Layer Of Chips’:
‘There’s a dark edge that runs throughout, especially on tracks such as ‘Thank Constantine’, but it’s on songs like ‘Starstruck and Forever’, which sounds like The Wedding Present’s underrated late 90s stuff, that Amida really hit the mark. The sneering delivery makes it all so deliciously defiant, which, together with everything else, makes this record really quite precious.’
- My Life As A Trashcan
- A New Low
- I Was Rude, You Were Fast
- Thank Constantine
- Starstruck Forever And Ever
- Let Me Do This For You
- They Breathe Gas For Air So We Lit A Match
- Reversal Of Fortune
In August we went to Berlin to play a festival called Indie Pop Days:
We had a lovely time, thanks to all the bands and people involved in the festival for making it happen.
There are some photo’s here
And an interview we did with a webzine called Berlin Beat
Here’s an excerpt from a review of our new EP:
‘Amida have come up with their best songs yet on new ep The Spite House Plot. Fans of The Aislers Set’s snappy pop with deliciously tart lyrics Siddeleys style (“I talked to god and my ex-girlfriend/At least one of them lied”) will love Oleander; fans of This Poison!’s furious jangle played at 100mph will find their needs met in Victor Spoils; and anyone missing the bouncing bass lines of Bob should head straight to A Month Of Sundays.’
