PENNY WINBLOOD: Self-titled: CD

Six years in the making, (recorded back in 2006!), Penny Winblood’s self-titled album was well worth the wait. This guitar/drummer duo churns out a storm of fuzzy, abrasive noise rock/post-hardcore that I was in love with from the first track. Sudden changes, from mellow riffs and soft fuzz to raging and blazing riffs, kept me rocking hard throughout. Dual female/male vocals, both alternating between singing and shouting, fit perfectly with the back and forth of the intensity present in the music. Highly recommended.
