TORPEDO COFFINS: Self-titled: CDEP

Tracy Skull has been on the scene a long time—Thee Undertakers, Moral Decay, Insulin Reaction, Knucklebone, Lydia Lunch, and Tracy & The Skulls, to name a few—and his new band of cohorts add some tunes that are a nice addition to his oeuvre. Here they mine many of the different sub-styles he’s touched on previously and dish up four tracks of dark, Americana-infused punk (or vice-versa) for your earholes. The proceedings are infused with the right mix of gloom and sly humor, the performances are solid, and the tunes are on-point throughout. –Jimmy Alvarado (Torpedo Coffins, facebook.com/torpedocoffins)
