LA trio Automatic releases 7″ vinyl + launches LA residency tonight

Today, LA post-punk trio Automatic releases the limited-edition vinyl for their lead single “Calling It” via Stones Throw Records. The 7″ pressing also features a cover of Delta 5’s “Mind Your Own Business,” which is also now available on all streaming services. The single, taken from the band’s forthcoming debut album Signal, captures the restlessness of feeling adrift and wanting to start over, encapsulating the deeply-rooted angst that informs the album’s songwriting.

Speaking on the Delta 5 cover, the band says:

“We just wanted to cover it because it’s such a cool sassy song with an amazing beat. It has an inspiring attitude because it can be hard to say no, but it makes you feel empowered to do just that. It’s fun yelling ‘NO’ on stage.”

The vinyl’s release coincides with tonight’s launch of Automatic’s month-long residency at Los Angeles’ The Echo every Monday in August, followed by a string of European and UK dates in October, and a show at New York’s Bowery Ballroom in November. 

Their debut album ties together their taste for dub reggae, motorik rhythms, and gnarly synth work inspired by bands like NEU! and Suicide with the eerie atmosphere of films by auteurs like David Lynch and Dario Argento for an album capturing what it’s like to feel at an angle to the world. The album will be released on regular vinyl, limited edition bright red vinyl, and CD.

Signal speaks directly to the band members’ experiences, tied together by a sense of anxiety and alienation so common to life in the 21st-century. “Humanoid” echoes “Too Much Money”s sentiment on the disappointing falsity of social media, “Electrocution” recounts a near-death freak accident singer Izzy experienced – alluded to on the album art, and the title-track captures the feeling of being trapped in the drudgery of a mundane life “and the realization that nobody is going to rescue you from it but yourself.” As they put it: “The world is so fucked up, we don’t know how any musician could say, ‘This is all peachy.'”
