Amateur Childbirth’s Pripyat now available in the shop; LP for Blackest incoming   

Pripyat clip

If you’ve not come across Pripyat, the sophomore album from Amateur Childbirth, perhaps it’s time to get acquainted – we have a handful of copies of this modern classic, released late last year in addition of 300 by Disembraining Machine, now available in the BEB shop (and at a very reasonable price for an Aussie import, we might add. It’s available on digital formats as well, here).

The nom de plume of Brisbane’s Ivan Matthew Hicks, Amateur Childbirth deals in a uniquely mordant, apocalyptic acoustic pop – playful but damaged, digressive yet flab-free –  and we can say with some confidence that Pripyat is one of the best sides you’ll encounter all year. We’re also pleased to say that its full-length follow-up will be released on Blackest Ever Black in 2015 – more information about that in due course.
