Moving Units touring with VHS or Beta

Next Tuesday (the 9th) is the release date set for Moving Units' second full length album Hexes For Exes. If you haven't checked the group out yet, their sound offers a synth-laced post-punk album full of driving tracks that will make you wish you were part of a throbbing mass of bodies in some dark dance floor. Although most of the tracks push out a beat that's propelled by electronic drums and synthesizers, there is some tight guitar riffs here and here to keep the sounds from becoming completely inorganic. Besides releasing some new tunes, the band is also scheduled to tour with VHS or Beta in November. Dates are down below.

Check out the two tracks here to get a taste if you haven't listened to MU before. Pink Thoughts gives you a pretty good idea of their quasi-techno dance feel. Listen to the chorus of the second track, Wrong Again, and tell me it doesn't sound like an updated version of the chorus to the much older The Letter, by The Box Tops, also below.
