Boomkat Product Review:
Recorded by super-producer Alex Newport, ‘Honeys’ is the fourth LP from Pennsylvania hardcore troupe Pissed Jeans, and from the sounds of it age hasn’t smoothed out their jagged edges. This is gristle-filled noise rock with the kind of raw bloodlust you’d usually expect to find from a bevvy of maladjusted teens hiding out in the family basement, so to keep that kind of resolve up must take some serious dedication. With ‘Honeys’ we get a grab-bag of short-but-sweet two minute hardcore ‘pop’ anthems, ripped with the kind of knife-blade riffs and wall-ruining percussion that always made the band so crucial. It’s nothing new, but Pissed Jeans have managed to prove that while they might be nearing ten years old at this point, time hasn’t blemished their ability to tear sh*t up.
