Hin Du, out of Huntington Beach, includes five young dudes (all 18 to 21), who are fusing garage rock and blues...definitely in a similar vein as Fidlar, Allah-Las, The Soft Pack and Surfer Blood. They have all been friends since high school ( which was only about 3 years ago for most of them), where they also launched the band as well. The band has received great support from Hurley (4-son
g EP + performing at the upcoming US Open of Surfing with Grouplove and White Arrows). Recently, the guys opened for Delta Spirit and Tijuana Panthers at The Observatory, and have also performed with Allah-Las, Har Mar Superstar, JJMAZ, Gantez Warrior and many other local standouts at well-known venues in OC and LA
The band was unintentionally founded by El Segundo natives Joo-Joo Ashworth (guitar, vocals) and Jeff Fribourg (omnichord), who each graduated from El Segundo High School in 2012 and 2008, respectively.
"Frothing at the gash" is a crude Australian idiom which combines the phrase "frothing at the mouth" with a slang term for vagina: gash, typically referring to a woman who is eager to have sex.
Let the giggles abound, but Froth's music is just as good and nasty as its vulgar roots. They're blending a delicious combination of '60s garage, psych, surf, low-fi, and shoegaze drenched in Ashworth's exaggerated lyrical compositions bathed in washed out, heady vocals. Maybe some Country Joe & the Fish, Creation, and general '60s nuggets from the old school, mixed with some Brian Jonestown Massacre, Black Angels, and Entrance Band from the newer school. It's a neo-psychedelic sound quite popular in parts of Europe currently, as well as throughout Los Angeles – which is where Froth has taken it. They're presently based in Echo Park.
"At one level, this is garage rock … But the music on Peace, Victory and the Devil breaks out of those constraints, not as if it's struggling but as if it's shrugging off any concern for rules, as if it's easy to pioneer a new sound.
Whether [Jones] is channeling spirits, or whether Feeding People is simply a band of spirited musicians all pulling together to make her glossolalia of gloom the official soundtrack for these apocalyptic times, Peace Victoy and the Devil will make you want to stockpile this album and hole up in your bunker to await the band's next revelation."
— Dan Collins, LA Record
Garagey racket meets a Wedding Present whirl of skittering guitars. A quote from their own band bio sums up the band's style and sense of humor in a sentence: "Influences include: The Velvet Underground, The Fall, The Pixies, Bo Diddley, Talking Heads and a bunch of other crappy bands." Heh. Crappy, indeed.
