Finally, a new cut from Melbourne’s visceral post-punk band Total Control. Typical System, their second LP, was written, recorded, created over the past two years and is set for US/Worldwide release via Iron Lung Records on June 24th and self-release in Australia/New Zealand on June 20th.
Total Control emerged from Australia’s dynamic punk scene in ’08, releasing a succession of 7″s that developed from an aggressive post-punk band sound to studio forays into electronic forms from minimal wave to house. Subsequently, they have released three very different records: a split 12″ with Thee Oh Sees, a 7″ single on Sub Pop and a house remix 12″. Typical System develops on the incongruent demands of their debut LP and ensuing releases.
