SICK THOUGHTS: Terminal Teenage: LP

Two LPs, ten 7”s, and a 10” all released in the course of less than two years?! This is either the work of a madman hell-bent on prolificacy, or a teenager with absolutely nothing better to do than crank out a jaw-dropping amount of blown-out, lo-fi, bedroom-style garage punk. While the madman title has yet to be confirmed or denied, Sick Thoughts is in fact the work of local Baltimore teenager Drew Owen. It’s abrasive, it’s harsh, it’s punk. Rootsy and primal, if you want something raw this will satisfy. Angry and alienated, desperate for reason, this is a journey into the mind of a frustrated, lonely teenager. All too relatable.
