LOPEZ, THE: Fur: 7” EP

Noisy pop kind thing here with a bit of snotty punk edge (mainly in the vocals). A little bit of feedback, some fuzz, and three upbeat songs that profess their love of felines (yes, you read that right). “Furriest One” sounds like a cross between Hunx And His Punx and Big Eyes, but with the din of distortion. The B side has the better songs on here—“Kingdom of Cat Piss” and “Fur Babies.” These two are more direct and to the point with a heavier beat and forceful vocals over a driving bass and noisy blarps from a guitar. Comes on translucent pink vinyl that looks perdy when held up to the light. I’m as amused by how the light is captured in the record as a cat is entertained by a human moving a beam from a flashlight along the floor.
