I Have Lost All Desire For Feeling

Punk-rock revelations like Perfect Pussy don't come along nearly often enough. They've got it all: great riot-feminist name, excellently miserable hometown (Syracuse, New York), ragingly chaotic live shows and a noise-assault donnybrook of a debut EP. The Double P don't make it easy: They give their songs stark Roman-numeral titles, and vocalist Meredith Graves' vibrant hollerings are buried under a violent hardcore scrum. Their lyrics reveal a grueling intimacy: "My best friend is back in town/There's a bad taste in my mouth/Her eyes fell low and heavy with shame and cum." It's the uncut truth of music that won't hold anything back.
