Crooked Spine (Horses of Summer)
Crank this to 7.8 of 11
Genre: Post punk, Noise rock
Sounds Like: Lesion, Gorilla Biscuits
Homeland: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Old school New York City punk vibes sprinkled throughout
DeGrado shines when singing, less so with his spoken word
Opener and closer are well worth your time……solid post-punk
Foursome’s fifth release. Checkout their diverse library
1. Shanghai White Oak Tree (2:17)
Punklicious picture painting. Love the lyrics on this track.
2. Spit in My Eye (2:12)
Deep rick base accompany some piercing fretwork are swallowed by GG Allen-esque vibes.
3. Burning Pt. 2 (2:29)
Steve Martin spoken word? Oddest of the lot.
4. Paoli in the Foothills (6:11)
Off the beaten mellow track that contains some raw off-kilter heart. Give it time to breathe
5. The Delicate (Shipping News) (3:09)
Rivals the opener for best track. Good grinding punk-faire.
Tired Hands Brewing and their deceitful potion 'Extra Extra Knuckle' is the perfect post punk Crooked Spine blend. A Double IPA brewed at 8.6% is brewed with a bit of fluffy malted wheat and hopped. Notes of passion fruit, mango nectar, jellied strawberry, ripe honeydew, and mandarin orange.
