Twerps are about to release a 3-song 7″ for “Work It Out” on Chapter Music/Underwater Peoples in October. Those who prefer digital will be able to purchase the songs on September 17th, while the vinyl faithful will have to be patient and wait until October 23rd. No matter, you can listen to one of the two B-sides, “He’s In Stock”, by licking the Soundcloud player below.

Twerps – Through the Day from Life or Death PR on Vimeo.
The very first shot reminded me of an album by the 60’s band Spirit.
After that, it’s pure Twerps.
These guys will eventually be joining a cast of a bunch of people heading to this year’s SXSW, so if you’ve been a fan or have yet to be turned on by their power, click the video and be turned on.
