Perfect Pussy, 'Say Yes to Love' (March 18th)

Perfect Pussy

This Syracuse, New York, band set the underground punk scene ablaze last year with an intense four-song cassette demo. For their full-length debut, Perfect Pussy changed "almost nothing," says singer Meredith Graves. "We turned my vocals up a little." In fact, Graves, only an occasional drinker, downed a whole bottle of whiskey to boost her confidence in the studio. The results are relentless but more textural, as on the borderline-techno suite "Advance Upon the Real"/"VII," which the band devised after crowds complained that its 15-minute sets were too short. "I'm ready to puke by the time we're done playing," Graves says. "What more do you want?"
