Pissed Jeans - Honey (2013)

Pissed Jeans are a punk band from Pennsylvania. They wear their influences prominently and throughout the entire album, I am constantly reminded of three bands; Black Flag, Nirvana and the Melvins. High praise indeed.

For instance, the intro to Health Plan could almost be the intro to Nirvana’s Breed from Nevermind (1991), while You’re Different (In Person) could be a track off Bleach (1989). Such is the brutal heavy guitars and driving drums and vocals, that it is entirely appropriate to label them as sludgy, grungy metal. Chain Worker is so early Melvins-esque; and other tracks off Honey sound like Black Flag’s classic diversion into sludge/doom My War (1984).

I’m so glad that people are still making music that sounds like this; and while some might call it anachronistic, I prefer to call it classic, and I have absolutely loved this album from the very first play.

Favourite tracks: Chain Worker, You’re Different (In Person), Male Gaze
