Pissed Jeans : Bathroom Laughter

Look at the four faces below and tell me: do these boys look like they should be in a band called Pissed Jeans? At a glance, the members of the Allentown, PA quartet could pass for IT guys, homeless shelter volunteers or record label dudes (the latter is actually accurate: frontman Matt Korvette runs the White Denim label and put out the excellent Daughn Gibson album earlier this year), but their clean-cut image belies the grizzled hardcore punk noise have been cranking out for the best part of the last decade. The bio on the Sub Pop website claims their music sounds like “a recorded loop of a marching band being pushed down a waterslide, with added distortion”, which is a fair description but one that doesn’t quite do it justice. Click play below and listen to the Black Flag-waving ode to the joys of a happy workplace “Bathroom Laughter”, the first taste of forthcoming fourth album Honeys, out February 12 2013.

About foamhands

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
