REVIEW: Pissed Jeans - Honeys (Sub Pop)

by Steve Wichelecki

The adolescent sound of '80s hardcore punk comes of age in Pissed Jeans' Honeys, transformed from raw and uncouth teenage aggression to tight and sophisticated hard-n-heavy rock. The group's latest LP on Sub Pop features dark and buzzy guitar hooks, heavy-as-fuck bass lines and sneering vocals yelled in despair. Sometimes sludgy with a heavy groove, sometimes ballistic and hysterical, Honeys represents a mature chronicle of our modern world's myriad founts of discontent, our sources of daily frustration, pain and anger. Be sure to blow off some steam to these pissed-off tunes on Thursday, April 18, at Empty Bottle, when Pissed Jeans will rip it up along with locals Fake Limbs and Blizzard Babies.
