genre: punk | rock | power-pop
Somewhere between the incredibly brilliant and the criminally insane lies our newest addition to the broadcast…otherwise know as Sickhoose. Their latest release, a 3 song ditty entitled Nozdrilz, comes pre-installed with a respectable dose of angst-laden guitars and syncopated rhythms (Stuart Copeland would be so proud) which, in turn, provide a compelling backdrop for a vocal element that effortlessly intermixes melody and harmony.
For those who like a little more “umph” in their indie, look no further as the Sickhoose pendulum clearly swings to edgier side of the alternative music spectrum. Britain’s Ad Lee and Davy Pecket beautifully slam 10 lbs of punk-infused power pop into a 5 lb sack. That being said, rest assured theirs is not an experiment in discordant feedback or disconnected power chords played as part of some cathartic release suggested by their therapist. Quite the contrary. Actually, for a genre that has many imitators and impersonators, it’s quite invigorating to hear something creative and unique. Now if I could only figure out what the names of their songs mean! Regardless, well done mates, well done.
