PLEATHER: “Wasting Time” b/w “Riot”: 7”

This is what I am talking about. This quick 7” included a little note about the band and, most notably, the fact they hail from Hattiesburg, Miss. which is described as “the best current punk scene in the U.S.” And with these songs, I’m convinced. It reminds me of some staples of our PNW scene in the past couple years, like Childbirth and Pony Time—fun, raucous, sassed-up but nonchalant vocals woven into the meeting place between riot grrrl and shoegaze. A more punk version of Snail Mail’s Habit EP; sad and wistful but with a wink of fuck you. –Theresa W. (Feral Kid)
