Listen to the Restrained Garage-Punk of “With That Face” off Green/Blue’s Forthcoming Debut S/T LP
We’ve been keen on Green/Blue since we first heard of them and saw their debut show last year. How could you not? With alum from The Blind Shake, Soviettes/Awesome Snakes, and Birthday Suits, it seems almost impossible to go wrong. This week the group announced their debut LP – self-titled because let’s not go crazy – will be coming out April 17th on the great Slovenly Recordings label, home to many a great garage-punk LPs over the years. The first song off the forthcoming LP is the mid-tempo “With That Face,” which is a more subdued version of their fuzzy, melodic garage stompers that we’ve heard so far.
The song has a burning tension, tightly wound riffs and a dirty, barbed-wire melody. It reminded me a lot of the quasi-ballads that Jay Reatard did so well during his time. Knowing that there will be some rippers on this record, it’s cool that they started off with a song that feels a bit more retrained is a cool move. Can’t wait to hear the whole record later this month.
You can stream “With That Face” and pre-order the record below from the Slovenly bandcamp page.
