Drag on Girard: Comeback von Purling Hiss

Purling Hiss, die lärmende Rockformation um Frontmann und Mehrfachinstrumentalist Mike Polizze und berüchtigt für exzessiven Einsatz von Distortion und White Noise, bringt Ende März und somit sechs Jahren nach dem eigentlichen Vorgänger, ein neues Album heraus. Der bisher einzigen Single “Yer all in my Dreams” nach zu urteilen flirtet die in Philadelphia ansässige Combo gerade mit all dem Pop-Potenzial, das aus ihrem Stil herauszuholen ist. “Drag on Girard” erscheint am 24. März als LP, CD und zum Download bei Drag City.

“Drag On Girard, the first full length Purling Hiss album in six years, cruises through diverse states of mind and places in time — dreams from the past and the future, careening lawlessly as they slide around loose on the road with crushed guitar harmonics, fused with anthemic melody and choruses. As before, but with new twists, Mike Polizze and his gang let loose with the chaos and noise implied by their name, applying high end splatter and slow rolling low end to eight vehicles, running the gamut from gleaming pop gems to head-cleaning epic jams before they’re done. This time out, the colliding circles of time seem to have inspired both the songs and the band, and the sentiment-drenched mood explodes in a wild tangle of guitars that seem constantly about to overwhelm the room”.
