Product Description

Product Description

We can now have this for the UK. When Naomi Punk's debut LP The Feeling came out in Spring 2012 on Couple Skate records, it felt new and unpretentious. Not in the sense that it was without influence. There's plenty to pick apart in their music. The band isn't afraid of writing pop songs, the same way other bands like Sonic Youth and Nirvana would draw out huge hooks from dissonance but their sound is very much their own. Though they initially began as a collage project, and their website is little more than a couple images, a list of some bands they like, and contact info, Naomi Punk, are, at heart, a trio that just wants to make good songs. Together, Travis Coster (23), Neil Gregerson (20) and Nicolas Luempert (20) carefully construct perfect, wild rock songs that feel sentimental, like they took Kate Bush's sonic imprint and complex melodies and constructed fuzzed out rock around them. Luempert's drums tumble and pound, but still leave plenty of room for empty space, allowing Gregerson and Coster to conjure up these hooky, almost primitive, guitar lines that sound so obvious it seems like everyone should be imitating them. But they're not, and through a rigorous series of tours over the last three years, Naomi Punk has developed a devoted following. It's no surprise either, tracks like Voodoo Trust sneak up on you. It burrows into your brain the chorus knocking around your ears way before you even figure out what they're singing. Considering the way the music world is today, you'd expect a bunch of young Seattle dudes to get extra weird, if only because they can, but Naomi Punk take a different route, constructing brawny, anthemic rock songs that'll make every kid that hears them want to start their own band, if even half of them are this good, music will be in a pretty great place. // If you are in a rock band in 2012, it often feels like the best possible goal you could have for yourself is figuring out how to translate all your energy and emotion into every song you release in a sort of whatever-minute cathartic release of angst and anger and/or happiness or whatever else. Naomi Punk are great at this. The FADER //

4.0 out of 5 stars A Heady Brew 19 Jun 2014

This seems to have spun various strains of grunge, mid-america punk of the 80s and more arty forms of pre-Nirvana alt rock into a cathartic, moody tone poem. It shares some qualities with the post-rock movement of the late 90s/early 2000s, but is much more powerful and earthy than that. The tiny, grimy interludes that buttress some of the songs are a nice reprieve to the more explosive moments and actually lend the album a kind of narrative arc. They also know how to indulge without being indulgent! Even songs which stretch out and are longer seem efficiently succinct.
5.0 out of 5 stars An entire album of catchy riffs smothered and suppressed with adorning hypnosis 12 Mar 2013
By C. Clary - Published on
I can't say that I've heard anything remotely like this since the 90s. That said, this is not a 90s grunge rehash record, as some have implied. Mark Am, of Mudhoney fame, would have indeed exclaimed this to be "pure grunge" but grunge only in the sense that it's dissonance is noise crafted harmoniously into a set of songs. It's not the type of record that's going to put you to sleep. It's also not a record to make you want to rip your ears out as much of the 80s hair metal did to me. It has this airy, bullet-riddled feel to it...if that's possible. It reminds me of a sunny day at the beach on the Pacific Ocean where you are constantly being riddled with heavy surf. The notes just hang mid-curl for a split second ready to knock you down, over and over...and then they strike you back, just like a wave. Set that on repeat and you have this album. This album is certainly not for everyone. For those looking for something a bit different than what's floating out there now, definitely give this a listen. You will at the very least, appreciate it for its ingenuity at sounding different...even if your ears don't full appreciate the sound. The standout tracks appear to be "Burned Bodies," "The Spell," and "Voodoo Trust." Burned Bodies is likely the only song to reach a larger audience as it is the only track that manages to escape the wave-like torture of the album. Enjoy the dissonant structure of the the very least.
