Pissed Jeans' gutter-scraped amalgamation of sludge, punk, noise, and bracing wit make the band-Korvette, Brad Fry (guitar), Randy Huth (bass) and Sean McGuinness (drums)-a release valve for a world where absurdity seems in a constant battle trying to outdo itself. Why Love Now picks at the bursting seams that are barely holding 21st-century life together. Take the grinding rave-up "The Bar Is Low," which, according to Korvette, is "about how every guy seems to be revealing themselves as a shithead.
These guys get LOUD, and talk about some good stuff, most of the time. For example, the lyrics on Why Love Now are particularly pointed about gender relations and the minefield they present in 2016. "'It's Your Knees' is about the endless, unrequested, commenting on if you'd fuck a girl. You know what I mean? 'My great aunt won a cooking contest.' 'Oh, that's pretty hot. I'd hit that,'" says Korvette. "It's bizarre how guys will willingly share this stuff as if it's always in their brains, and now it gets to come out because you're on the internet. There's a boldness to it now that was not maybe there before. So the premise is like, 'Yeah, she's hot, but her knees are weird looking. Not for me, man.'"
If you like the noise of Metz and the punchy rock of the Jesus Lizard, you'll dig this!
