Perfect Pussy – “(I)” b/w “Bells” 7″ (2014)

I couldn’t figure out why a record store in Glaway, Ireland had so many copies of the recently released Perfect Pussy 7″ (I).  The band doesn’t have any obvious connections to the country, and this was a fairly limited pressing of only 500 copies.  It turns out, though, that the label that released it, Art For Blind, is Irish… so I guess it makes sense in a way.

Perfect Pussy are a punk band out of Syracuse, New York, and they’ve been receiving a fair amount of attention lately. The A side of this 7″ is the song “I” that originally appeared on their 2013 album “I Have Lost All Desire For Feeling,” a fast, raw number defined by Meredith Grave’s lo-fi, attacking vocal style.  The flip side is a live version of “Bells” recorded in 2013 for WNYU, a somewhat distorted effort that still does a decent job in capturing the band’s rough, edgy sound.

Both songs are super short – there’s only three-and-a-half minutes of music on this puppy, so the appeal is probably more for the die-hard fan.  That being said, I liked what I heard, and liked it enough that I’ll probably check out at least a few more Perfect Pussy tunes online.
