PISSE: Self-titled: LP

May 27, 2020

An orgy of sounds and influences ranging from punk, post-punk, and hardcore with just enough synth weirdness to scratch your head at whilst simultaneously bobbing it. The song “Zu Viel Speed” even has a bit of a surf rock appeal. Certainly there’s a lot going on here but nothing seems forced or unlistenable. I can see fans of the Lost Sounds, Tuxedomoon, and the Spits vibing to this. What’s the perfect way to wrap up an already weird album? With the sounds of a rooster crowing, of course! Which now begs the question: which came first? The chicken or the egg punk? –Juan Espinosa (Phantom / Harbinger Sounds / pisse.bandcamp.com)
