This is good. Phil told me I'd like it when he brought it round but when he said it was noise rock I was thinking it'd be some kind of coruscating racket like Divorce or something. Actually it's more groove-based than I had anticipated, locking in like some relentless rumbling juggernaut that slowly but steadily flattens everything in its path. Unsane springs to mind, but with more lo-fi grit like the most recent Hey Colossus and Dethscalator offerings.
The vocals veer between strangled sneers and a kind of detached half-sung style which combined with all those meaty riffs remind me a lot of TAD, although the chug'n'croon of opener 'Crab House' has more in common with Queens of the Stone Age (or maybe Mondo Generator's 'Cocaine Rodeo', which if you don't remember the '90s was kind of 'Rated R''s unofficial sister album) than any of the noise/grunge crowd.
That said, as an album this is unequivocally a noise/grunge record. It's nasty and groovy and fun and I bet they're really great live to boot. It's 2014 and it's not weird that grunge bands are putting out debut albums again.
