CURRENTLY LISTENING: Otitis by MOURN
It took a while for MOURN to make their way to my ears (mostly because I don’t read Pitchfork). This fiery five-piece from Barcelona caught my immediate attention with “Otitis”. With biting vocals, cutting percussion and sludgy guitars, they certainly have the makings of becoming the next grunge hitmakers. On “Boys are Cunts” the PJ Harvey resemblance is uncanny. Still, Harvey never got old, right? Neither do MOURN. The ending to this track offers a surprising and violent punk jolt that really makes this girl giddy as fuck for the amazing tunes coming out of these brilliant teens.
Come see MOURN at Baby’s All Right on March 29.
Or see them in their hometown for the Primavera Fest in May. I just might.
