Philadelphia quartet Purling Hiss slow-cook punk anthems until they're perfectly seasoned with equal parts distortion, fuzz and psychedelia. And lucky us: the foursome's latest, Weirdon – a tightened extension of the staticky musings on their last record, 2013's Water on Mars – is their best batch yet. There's much to love here, from the lysergic twang of "Running Through My Dreams" to the playful pop perfection of "Aging Faces.'' The songs are tightly threaded by the band's mastermind Mike Polizze and his warbly drawl rhapsodizing about aging fast, learning slow and experiencing something profound during the moments in between. If this is a condensed imprint of life, we have yet another reason to believe it's beautiful.
