PSYCHEDELIC PORN CRUMPETS
SHARE NEW VIDEO FOR “MUNDUNGUS”
PERFORM LIVE ON KEXP

 

Following a huge tour across North America, Europe and the UK, Perth’s Psychedelic Porn Crumpets today share their new video for “Mundungus”, shot by the band on Super-8 over the summer and taking us along for the ride of their whirlwind past few months. A new favourite addition to the live set, “Mundungus” premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show, and is the band’s first release since they shared their acclaimed new album And Now For The Whatchamacallit earlier this year.

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets – Mundungus

“Mundungus”, an archaic term for foul-smelling tobacco (or, for eagle-eyed Harry Potter fans, the name of Order of the Phoenix member and conman, Mundungus Fletcher), is a confident and fleshed out offering from the band, who have truly taken 2019 by the horns. About the track, frontman Jack says “Mundungus is the rare post tour recovery period where all our surrounding friends and family assume we’re crippled with alcoholism, burdened with lives of social estrangement and are far too disillusioned to foresee our self destructive tendencies”.

While on tour in North America, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets stopped at the world famous KEXP studios in Seattle. Watch their live session below:

Listen to / stream / buy And Now For The Whatchamacallit

Psychedelic Porn Crumpets’ third studio album And Now For The Whatchamacallit is out now via Marathon Artists and is a culmination of experiences lived on the road and influences stemming from the last few years of chaos for the band.

Hailing from the same Aussie homeland as psych-rock contemporaries Tame Impala, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and POND, the release of Psychedelic Porn Crumpets’ And Now For The Whatchamacallit marks an exciting chapter for the band that sets them apart from the crowd. Recorded between Jack McEwan’s bedroom and Tone City Studios in Perth, mixed by Michael Jelinek (Gunns) and mastered by John Davis (Gorillaz, The Killers), And Now For The Whatchamacallit is representative of the band’s huge developed sound and even loftier ambitions.

Praise for And Now For The Whatchamacallit

“We still don’t know what a porn crumpet is, but we do know what psychedelia is, and that’s just what Perth-based psych outfit Psychedelic Porn Crumpets delivers” – NPR All Songs Considered

“This Perth, Australia band’s third album is a fine set of gonzo psych-rock reminiscent of King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard ranging from crunchy stoner-rock to dreamy space-rock.” – KEXP

“Psychedelic Porn Crumpets’ latest album is as memorable as their band name. And Now For The Whatchamacallit sees the Australian rockers at their very best and most developed sound, with soaring guitar and experimental arrangements.” – Paste Magazine

“‘And Now For The Whatchamacallit’ shifts the band away from the shadow of Tame Impala and Unknown Mortal Orchestra into something far more particular and intricate, but just as entertaining – an exuberant, hair-flailing stew of prog, psychedelic rock, glam, speed metal, math rock and doom boogie.” – Metro
