I’m going to see the Whines tonight

It’s a garage band from Portland, female-fronted, primitive, minimalist…with ties to Eat Skull and Meth Teeth. Apparently they’re one of Ty Segall’s favorite bands…there’s a little write-up and some downloads at the Free Music Archive.

Of Hell to Play, the band’s Med Records full-length, Doug Mosurock (of Dusted-affiliated Still Single) said, “this record is goddamn great. It’s Nirvana by way of Heavens to Betsy and early Bugskull. What could be better?”

He also wrote some other stuff that you can read here.

Plus there’s this…

More later.

How were the Whines? I think I've also got my girlfriend into them now.

They were good...actually it was a fun night. I have a write-up coming pretty soon at Blurt. I'll put a link up when it goes live.
