On Tuesday, the always-excellent Goner Records gave Amusements, the raucous debut from early Devo-channeling Aussie quartet Ausmuteants a proper US release. The wait was worth it: the record is a wonder, two parts nervous Wire, one part Chrome-plated synth freakouts. It’s a tense, snarling record, aimed squarely at the soft spot of anyone who thought great music lived and died in the UK in the mid ’70s. On April 15th, they’ll release it on limited-edition color vinyl (the first 100 orders come with an Ausmuteants T-Shirt iron-on decal, too). Get wise now with the white-hot, 100-second “Kicked in the Head By A Horse.”
