Just heard this stunner of a track on Marc Riley’s BBC 6 Music show and ordered the vinyl from the USA on the spot (and sod the exorbitant postage cost to the UK - totally worth it!).
Favorite track: Melt The Arms.
The Apparition / Melt the Arms is the third release from Los Angeles band Flat Worms (Tim Hellman, Justin Sullivan, Will Ivy) on New York's Famous Class Records. The 7" single follows their debut LP on Castle Face records. These songs were recorded with Ty Segall in his home studio during a global heatwave.
"The dream was an apparition."

This sounds like it could have been released in any of the last 5-6 decades. Solid, tight songs that warm the soul. I’m picking up on a wide diversity of sounds, from The Pixies to Blondie. Really glad to have stumbled across these guys! Mister Anthrope
