Sways records are to release a 12″ EP from Manchester collective Womb on the 10th October.

Sways says: Sometimes it’s noise, sometimes it’s punk, sometimes it’s no-wave, sometimes it’s psych, sometimes it’s spacerock, sometimes it’s free jazz and sometimes it’ drone. At their second gig, Dan Treacy from the Television Personalities described Womb as “like seeing the Velvet Underground for the first time”. They also recently supported the great Electrelane at Manchester Academy.

Sways also says : We are pleased to announce the first 12″ release on SWAYS will be the self-titled EP from the Manchester-based all-female massive known collectively as WOMB. Each vinyl will come with handmade covers, some of which will be prints of Womb member’s body parts.

Electronic Musik says: The most important band to come out of Manchester in a very long time. I’ve heard a sneak preview on Fiona Ledgard’s Anything Goes Breakfast show last week. The track ‘Temple of Bees’ is a huge slab of primal sounds and energy, so much has been brought to Womb’s palette (Krautrock, free jazz, noise, punk, contempory classical, spacerock, avant garde, freak out) which is joyfully and unashamedly splattered onto their sprawling sonic canvas.
