#266: Brown Brogues - Zoloto (EP review)

Since moving from Wigan to Manchester, scuzzy two-piece Brown Brogues have developed somewhat of a cult following over the last four or five years with their fusion of guttural garage rock, bluesy vibes and punk ethos. Think the MC5, jamming with The Stooges by way of The Black Keys, all wrapped up in the spit’n'sawdust surrounds of one of Manchester’s many dive bars, and you won’t be far off the mark. With Record Store Day 2014 just around the corner, it seems justifiable that such a cult band should want to celebrate the occasion by releasing Zoloto, their first EP since 2012′s Born to Lose.
