Perfect Pussy – “Say Yes to Love” review

Perfect Pussy
Say Yes to Love
(CAPTURED TRACKS)

On their second record, hardcore punks Perfect Pussy find magic in the madness. This is a reckless and unforgiving record, smashing through songs like the band gets paid overtime for doing so. Shrill, but kind of chimey guitar work? Check. Rowdy drumming? You betcha. Blistering, but melodic vocals? You’d better believe it. SYTL pays homage to punk heroes, from the viciousness of early Minor Threat to the microphone feedback, pop-soaked punk of Skull Kontrol. Where Perfect Pussy really shine is not in their ability to rage through each track, but rather in their skill at crafting punk that isn’t afraid of having a strong hook … even if that hook happens to be a solid left to the eye. Tracks like “Interference Fits” show the band knows when to hold back, even if it’s not that often. — Syd Bishop
