Martha's Vineyard Ferries Ready 'Mass. Grave' LP With Song About Angel

martha's-vineyard-ferries

New band Martha’s Vineyard Ferries has a lot going for it. First, that’s an amazing band name, eclipsed only by the title of their upcoming record, “Mass. Grave.” Also, the lineup’s not too shabby, either: the group comprises¬†Chris Brokaw (Codeine, Come, the New Year), Bob Weston (Shellac, Volcano Suns, Mission of Burma) and Elisha Wiesner (Kahoots). Then there’s the first song they’ve released, “She’s a Fucking Angel (From Fucking Heaven).”

It’s a terse, speedy tune with a lo-fi churning guitar sound and deadpan lyrics about angels, devils and, of course, sex. Wiesner once joked that the band sounds like “Minor Threat crossed with ‘Eight Miles High’ by the Byrds,” and while that’s not exactly true, they sound pretty kickass nonetheless. Listen below to “She’s a Fucking Angel (From Fucking Heaven).” Their seven-song debut, “Mass. Grave,” is due Oct. 15 on Kiam Records.
