Postulate, Then Liberate
|Elias (Dr Furious)|
Kick ass punk/post-punk with lead grrrl vocals. California expats hailing from Philly, PA. Rhythmic chops on guitar remind the Quails and riff-based guitar grooves ring Sleater Kinney. There is a Stooges-esque undercurrent here (thickness of bass/drum line or maybe just a sloppy/lazy time signature)and an elusive Devo-esque quality. Wait, I think drum/bass line sometimes rings Pixies (track 10) and Throwing Muses (track 6). These guys have a dirty mouth, but so do I. Pretty good stuff.|
Play 9, 10, 6 (FCC), 5, 2 (FCC), 3, 1
1. Head bopping guitar chops open-up to a Sleater Kinney-esque guitar riff. Vocal chorus (clean-clean-clean) reminds Devo.
2. FCC (f-word). Devo-eque guitar riffs. Wait! She even sings "evolution sucks". De-evo-lved.
3. Mutual Masturbation is the name of this track and I am loving it... a frenetic melodic riff, vocals remind Bikini Kill.
4. Bouncy. Straight-up pop-punk rocker.
5. Lots of call-and-response interplay between guitar riffs. Dominant bass line and vicious rhythmic attacks. Mid-tempo - apocalyptic mood.
6. LOVE THIS TRACK!!! But FCC's (son of a bitch, F-word). Awesome melodic riff and free flowing rhythm/groove (see Throwing Muses). Dreamy and rebellious all at the same time.
7. FCCs. "Fuck it Up".
8. Straight up pop-punk rocker.
9. 100% Sleater Kinney-ish. Kicks ass!!!
10. Serious bass-drum line, whistling, rhythmic build-up's. This rings Pixies and Kim Deal. An epic coda.
