In 2013, Kilynn Lunsford and Mark Feehan collaborated for the first time, piecing together abstract sonic ideas and vivid vocals into their first, self-released LP as Taiwan Housing Project. Both had previous band experience under their belts — Lunsford in the Portland garage rock outfit Little Claw, which was active across the aughties, and Feehan in the 90s noiserockers Harry Pussy, which released a couple records on local imprint Siltbreeze.
Based in Philly, the two experimented in fusing extremely fun, infectious rock and roll with nihilistic sonic textures released by venerable Portland label Kill Rock Stars. They boast a ferocity that echoes no wave adjacent artists like Sonic Youth and Lydia Lunch, but the album is also profoundly catchy, a trait noticeable in the Cramps v B-52s face-off of “Authentic Alien Perfume.”
The Taiwan Housing Project family draws members from Tyvek and Writhing Squares on Veblen.
