MM And The Peculiars – “Paean” 12″ EP
Heading away from hardcore towards an indie rock direction. But, indie rock in the good sense of the tag, and particularly that of the 1990s (all it needs is Steve Albini production and the deal is sealed). Jagged basslines and whirling rythmic patterns are absolutely in the vein of Jesus Lizard, and, (there’s no escaping the comparison) PJ Harvey, too. The similarities are gobsmackingly impressive. The Peculiars are lead by Maegan Mills, known for also playing guitar in Big Cheese and Mere Mortal. 3 tracks on a 45 12″, with tasty ‘coke bottle’ green translucent vinyl.
