Hailing from the home of Thurston Moore and Dinosaur Jr., and drawing from the fertile music community that is Western Massachusetts, Potty Mouth are all-parts smart-pop craftswomen, specializing in taut, infectious, C-86 influenced indie pop meets '77 punk perfection. The band released their debut 12" vinyl EP, entitled "Sun Damage" in July 2012, which garnered the attention of Pitchfork, who called the six-song EP an "an impressive, no-filler debut," as well as The Boston Globe, who named Potty Mouth one of the "top five indie-rock bands to watch in 2013," with Brooklyn Vegan adding that they were "one of the most promising new bands in their local scene." Departing from the more angular shades of post-punk heard in their EP, "Hell Bent" is marked by its significantly heavier production and melancholic hooks. Nonetheless, the album stays true to the confident, youthful punk aesthetic the band has cultivated for themselves.
DC trio Priests channel the spirit of punk and '90s riot grrrl with a fiery intensity thanks in no small part to charismatic singer Katie Alice Greer. Drummer Daniele Daniele and guitarist G.L. Jaguar keep things thrashibly danceable.
