SLOVENLY just released the debut LP of North Carolina huffers PAINT FUMES. My friend April told me about these guys about a year ago promising me that I would be blown away by them but she couldn’t exactly describe their sound to me and I’m sorry to say that I can’t exactly describe their sound to you, either. Equal parts garage and guitar insanity, just enough rock-n-roll, psychotic howling a la Roky Erickson (but somehow more deranged than that) and drum beats that will pound your brain harder than the worst hangover you’ve ever had, and it sounds like nothing I’ve ever heard before. What’s really impressive to me is that they’ve managed to develop this incredibly unique intense sound with only two releases to date, a 7″ called EGYPTIAN RATS and this new LP, UCK LIFE. I wish their SPRING TOUR brought them to Boston, but you can check them out if you’re on the West Coast.
