For fans of: Sonic Youth, Nirvana, The Stooges.
Los Angeles four-piece, Washing Machines, have just released their new “Quick Fix EP” via Summer Bummer Records, and it’s full of top-notch, fuzzy, grungy goodness. Kicking off with “Big Cyst,” Washing Machines channel the likes of Sonic Youth and early Nirvana with raw, combative instrumentals and gravely vocals. “Big Cyst” can be described as aggressively blase`, with frontman Lucas Pearl growling out, “I don’t really know and I don’t really care, all I wanna do is stare stare stare…”
Next up is the surf-infused “Vaseline,” a combination of the chaotic sounds of The Stooges infused with the tiniest bit of the beachy vibes of Best Coast. Repeated, demanding lyrics make “Vaseline” perfect for a mosh pit anthem, with Pearl seething, “what I want is to be real!” The stand-out track will have you jamming in no time, and is the perfect transitional tune to split the album.
Lastly is “SONIC FUCK,” a predictably pissed-off track ripe with reberb-distorted guitars, crashing drums, and near-whining vocals. “SONIC FUCK” is dirty, gritty, and almost violent ending to a consistent release, and we can’t wait to hear more!
