BLANKZ, THE: White Baby: CDEP

Sep 26, 2018

The CD version of the debut 7” from Phoenix’s The Blankz mildly incorporates a new wave synth touch into a classic 1977 sound, reminiscent of what other current millennium bands like The Briefs attempt to emulate. Allegedly the first Blankz single in a series of nine, it’s one of my favorite records of the year so far. The title track tells the true story of the band’s singer, a white baby adopted by Mexican parents. The other song, “Sissy Glue,” carries on the punk tradition of singing about the joys of inhalants. Poppers aren’t needed to enjoy The Blankz, though. –Art Ettinger (Slope)
