PISS TEST: 7 Songs 7 Inches: 7”

Gainesville’s Piss Test play loud and fast punk. While some songs are lighthearted and fun party tracks like “Drinking Safari,” I was instantly drawn instead to “Gentrify My Balls,” which I’d have loved probably from the title alone. “Search Warrant” describes many of the abuses of police that are all too commonplace: implied consent, stop and frisks, and bigotry. “9 Lives” is an uplifting, soul-affirming song about re-inventing yourself. Collectively, the seven songs come together to give an angry dystopian party vibe that fits our current zeitgeist splendidly. –Lorien Lamarr (Self-released)
