New burnt technicolor vid from the UK's Young Athletes League, directed by fellow dark media-maker Albert Swarm and featuring smoke-breathing godheads, skeletons who are also breathing, awful druid types and an exploding volcano. It's a grim vision of the apocalypse, one maybe wrought by too much television, scored with the group's stark guitar, simple percussion and wildly processed vocals, sounding something like a dying fax machine's final moan. We mean that in only the best way. Young Athletes League's sharp 12-inch We Only Feed Ourselves is available now on Brooklyn's Ceremony.
