TOUGH SHITS: “Nicer than God” b/w “Babes of the Abyss”: 7” single

Philly’s Tough Shits brings you two twangy garage rock songs replete with shredding guitar solos and harmonic vocals. One side reminds me of Hüsker Dü, the other sounds more like Richard Hell. They’re melodic and loose—one of my favorite sonic combinations—and I look forward to hearing more from them. –Lyle (Founding Fathers, foundingfathersrecords.bandcamp.com)
