Peel Off the Coating is the new EP from Saint Louis-based heathens Braining. Clocking in at 10-minutes long with five tracks, it showcases the thick as all balls sound of this five-piece noise punk outfit spinning no-wave tinged riffs, hitting the hardest during their more fucked up and discordant moments. Josh Jenkins’ unhinged, fuzzed out screams and shouts have an awesome dynamic range and vitality, synergizing perfectly with the rest of the group, giving birth to a sound that is at turns playful, sinister and riotous. Meanwhile, it’s the dual guitars of Mabel Suen (one half of Spelling Bee) and Andy Peterson that really complete the group’s clearly-defined and huge sound, brought to grooving life by a tight, uptempo rhythm section comprising Joseph Hess (the other half of Spelling Bee) and Eli LaChance. All in all, Braining are one of the most fun bands operating at the grimy and ever-expanding fringes of DIY rock music.
