Crooked Bangs "II" LP

Nervous Intent

$ 16.50

Crooked Bangs are from Austin, and are proud purveyors of a distinct musical form of the freakiness for which that city is so well-noted. Crooked Bangs could be described as dark punk noir, with brooding guitar and bass lines, Phillip Gonzalez' relentlessly powerful drumming, and smoky French/English hybrid style vocals from Leda Ginestra - but the energy and overall vibe delve deep into the a distinctive sonic playing field and atmosphere akin to early Sub Pop singles club releases. Samantha (guitarist) has a distinct guitar style that is reminiscent of the more-innovative second-wave Crass Records bands such as Rudimentary Peni, 90's heavy-but-melodic noise rock like Babes In Toyland, and the noisier side of UK82 HC, while the whole band's sound remains resolutely modern and compatible with the dark garage ouvre from stalwarts such as Lost Sounds.
