PISSE: Self-titled: CS

I feel like a dick that this makes me think of the German acapella group from the second Pitch Perfect movie, but I swear to god that’s just because I’m an asshole American for whom DJ Flula is a major German cultural figure (mostly because of his hilarious online video with the excellent band Tanks). This tape gives a good variety from the band, including tracks from a split, a 7”, and a debut LP. It’s like German Reggie And The Full Effect, which is a compliment, believe me. The keys are spooky in a non-Halloween way and it’s yelly enough that I feel some No Wave vibes that makes me happy. –Theresa W. (Phantom)
