PEPPERMINTS, THE: Jesus Chryst: CD

Mar 27, 2007

I generally avoid bands that sound like they’re trying to be the Melvins, but when a band can sound sort of like the Melvins without sounding like they’re actually trying to do so, and when they’re seventy-five percent ladies to boot, I’m on board like Gord(on). Terrible record title notwithstanding (the last one was called Sweet Tooth Abortion—much better), the Peppermints’ bluntly sparkling exercise in thud power is a solid monolith of intention, and not inept, loose, noisy or shrill in any way.
