Earlier this week, Australian noise rockers Slug Guts released their third album, Playin' in Time With the Deadbeat, via Sacred Bones Records. The newly posted video for murk-mongering opener "Scum" plunges us right in the middle of the six-piece band's dank scrum, looking out into a swamp of guitar and bass-guitar necks. Cigarettes are puffed, no-wave saxophone is honked, and raw-throated vocals are howled. And then Slug Guts push everything into the red. Directed by Aussie filmmaking duo Sam Dixon and Adric Watson, it's a stark and harrowing introduction to an album forged out of what the label describes as a year of mental hospitals, courtrooms, jail cells, funerals, and rehab centers.
