BOOB SWEAT: Self-titled: CS

Aug 01, 2019

I’ve said for a while that I wanted to start an angry riot grrrl band with all the pop punk pep and upbeat energy of Pkew Pkew Pkew. So catchy but instead of dudes singing about beer, nonmen singing about issues and our lives. Turns out, I’m too late because Boob Sweat, a three piece from Grand Rapids, Mich., has that covered. The EP only has four songs but each could be the standout single on a longer record. The bass line on “Madison Ave” hooked me before I even heard the bright, charming vocals. This might be the catchiest, sing-a-longiest “Fuck you!” I’ve ever heard and to be honest, I’ve looked. I couldn’t help but smile at “TAMP-OFF!” a bouncy melody about inconveniently getting your period. I hope they release a full length soon because I could use more of this in my life. –Lorien Lamarr (Self-released, [email protected])
