Perfect Pussy, 'I Have Lost All Desire for Feeling'

Punk rock revelations like Perfect Pussy don't come along 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 that's right up there with Yeezus among 2013's freshest headaches. Vocalist Meredith Graves' vibrant hollerings are buried under a violent hardcore scrum, but transcriptions on their Bandcamp page 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.
