THE MALPRACTICE RELEASES FAREWELL EP ADDITIONAL PURCHASE INCENTIVES

THE MALPRACTICE
RELEASES FAREWELL EP
ADDITIONAL PURCHASE INCENTIVES OUT TODAY  
 

The Malpractice is almost done. Just four more songs to go and that’s it – the sun is setting on Denmark’s warped, fierce alt-rock project, masterminded by Johannes Gammelby (I Am Bones, Beta Satan, Tiger Tunes).

Additional Purchase Incentives showcases a multifaceted The Malpractice. That terrifyingly lonely feeling of being locked in a spacesuit, floating helplessly and hopelessly through hard vacuum from MASS (on “Heaven is a Manual”), the off-kilter and angry pop heights from Tectonics (as on “The Good Son”), the corrosive grunge of Slur on EP closer “I’ve Pissed Myself and It’s Okay”, and a further exploration of the extremes The Malpractice is capable of on opener “Get Father on the Phone”.

“Get Father on the Phone”
TRACK-BY-TRACK

“Get Father on the Phone” is an utterly disturbing, oedipal song featuring diaper changes, mother’s milk, screaming, and a ceaseless torrent of unreasonable demands. Set to uncompromisingly and harrowing, heavy music, The Malpractice wheezes and splutters and screams from the point of view of a commandeering baby, pushing its mother around and outmaneuvering the father.

On “The Good Son”, the falsetto vocal and guitar chops add magic swagger in the verses, luring you in before dealing the equivalent of a knock-out kick to the face in the chorus. It sounds like a lost, but ugly, classic.

Brooding, foreboding, sinister and beautiful, “Heaven is a Manual” offers no pay-off, but an eerie, constant feeling of almost-resolution that never arrives. It feels like arriving on an alien planet full of empty cities – a dark song with no Hollywood-ending.

And the sun finally sets on The Malpractice on the appropriately-for-The-Malpractice named “I’ve Pissed Myself and It’s Okay”. Here, Gammelby is playing with swords forged in the fires of Seattle. It’s 100% grunge and 100% makes you feel that it’s the greatest of tragedies that this band will release music no more.

“The Good Son”
Behind The Malpractice is Danish songwriter Johannes Gammelby (Beta Satan, I Am Bones). Dragging, limping, staggering, screaming and yelling at the absurdity and unfairness of cosmos, wrapped in a ragged sonic blanket of amphetamine reptile punk, sludge and grand, barking hymns for the tempting abyss.

An essential dogma for the songwriting in The Malpractice is to avoid the classic verse-chorus-verse structure. Instead, the songs start off at one place and end at another, eliminating the comfort that usually comes with more familiar song structures.
