Surfer Blood is what selling out to the summer vibes craze and Weezer-riffage revival sounds like, but just because that band blew up does not mean its members are all pandering douchebags. They struck gold. It happens. Before there was Surfer Blood a few of the members were in a noise-rock band called Weird Wives, making that harsh scuzz that places them on the artier side of credibility.
Through all the hype, Weird Wives plugs on as the courageous anti-thesis to Astro Coasting. The full length debuted is aptly titled Some Motherfuckers Gonna Be Walking 'Round With a Size 9 Diehard Up Their Ass, Cause Apparently They Ain't Never Seen a Short AC Man Get Bad Ass On Methadone, which is probably readable only on a 12″ cover, but these dudes squeezed it onto a cassette – like we said, “anti-thesis”. Efforts to pin down Weird Wives' sound are futile, as it runs the gamut of Big Black, Thinking Fellers Union Local 282 and Jesus Lizard, only to toss in a synth-manipulation instrumental curve balls like “Alone Times”. The members of Weird Wives incorporate a musical chairs approach to recording. The instrumental lineup on each track is unique and lends to the aggitated identity, making Weird Wives's debut a ripping good time. Check out “Predator 4” streaming in our player.
Weird Wives' Some Motherfuckers Gonna Be Walking 'Round With a Size 9 Diehard Up Their Ass, Cause Apparently They Ain't Never Seen a Short AC Man Get Bad Ass On Methadone is out October 31 on West Palm Beotch, limited to 150.
