WAR ON WOMEN: Improvised Weapons: 10”

Sep 11, 2012

War On Women is a co-ed feminist hardcore punk band hailing from Baltimore, MD—a city currently brimming with great bands—and after only a few listens to this 10”, I’d say it’s safe to add WOW to that list. Playing a brand of aggressive garage punk that features melodic riffs with an abrasive edge and female vocals that alternate between singing, shouting, and spoken-word passages, I found each song really damn catchy. I gleaned a positive feminist message in much of vocalist Shawna Potter’s lyrics, which I dug, though I would have appreciated a lyric sheet with the record to grasp everything she sang. Overall though, I enjoyed this record, and would love to hear more from the band.
