PISSED JEANS / Honeys [2013]

Chances are if you liked The Jesus Lizard or Flipper, noise-punk rockers Pissed Jeans will appeal to you.  
On their fourth LP 2013's Honeys, the band continue their special brand of hilarious loser lyrics in the most agressively tongue-in-cheek of ways.  As angry as the lyrics get it's always very apparent that frontman Matt Korvette is fully aware how minute his first world problems are compared to the bigger picture in life.  The songs have a real in the moment sludgy energy to them that offers nothing really memorable after their done.  It's not a bad thing, because the songs definitely stir up something inside, they just fail to linger for long.
