Premiering today on Northwest Music Scene is a kickass new EP called Stay Evil by Black Ends.
Here’s some of what we had to say in our review of Stay Evil:
Her new, four song EP, Stay Evil, scratches as her best joint work. Cover art and song inclusion birth a unity skimmed and hinted on from prior Black Ends’ singles and demos. Joined again by Ben Swanson (bass/keys) and Jonny Modes (drums), the trio rounds out a stentorian punk aesthetic.
Bent and laser-like guitar notes and anticipatory drumming motors “Stay Evil” towards the edge of a gravelly drop off and follower “Monday Mourning” carries a similar pitch flub towards the cliff. Swims’ vocal flexibility (a gritty Sam Phillips) rides atop the band’s thrusty dynamic gutter sprawl.
