Greed Island (album release), Ovlov, Rick Rude, Washer

Sat, Aug 12 2017 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm $10


Guitar rules all on Nest Egg, the second EP from New Hampshire natives Greed Island. Crunchy chords, emo octaves, and twinkling riffs cascade over distorted vocals while the chugging rhythm section guides the songs along. Everything comes together in a sea of fuzz that’s at the same time hopelessly happy and woefully sad, so the EP hits the spot whether you’re making out or staring at the ceiling. The seven songs—all worthy of making their way onto a first mixtape—flow with the buttery smooth fluidity of a concept album, but each track holds its own and it’s hard to nail down a standout because they’re all so damn good.

The record also does that weird thing that all the best slacker rock does: it pumps you up with love and energy, but also reminds you that the sun sets eventually and there’s never enough time to watch the pollen fall on the beer cans.

Nest Egg comes out on August 11 on the Salty Speakers label. Head up to Sue’s in Rollinsford, NH on Saturday, August 12, for their release show with Ovlov, Rick Rude, and Washer. – Rory Cooper
