Mazes have a new LP coming out next week, and precision, appropriately, is everything in this strobing capture of the Manchester four-piece playing "Skulking." These guys have a history of recording their economical garage-pop live to tape without fussing over them all that much, and when you see a song of theirs broken down like this—strum by strum, drum hit by drum hit—you can kind of see why they don't need to. Repetition can be pretty dazzling in itself, especially when it's cut from time to time with guitar solos like these. Ores & Minerals comes out on Fat Cat Feb 12th in the U.S. and Feb 18th in the UK.
