That’s Amore: Teen Tits Wild Wives

Outrageously-named Toronto "noise gang" TEEN TITS WILD WIVES is a band we've recently become pretty fond of. The band’s latest release, the Street Hawkz EP, is a great example of what they call themselves: a noise gang. The five track EP runs just a bit under 15 minutes and each track has its own distinctive feel. However, the noise never stops coming on this surprisingly-cohesive effort. The opening track, “KD,” is a mostly instrumental track that could draw comparisons to Dinosaur Jr. and Cloud Nothings. The in-unison chants at the end will remind you of the children from "The Wall" all grown up and still pissed of. The final song of the EP, “Avec Cheeze,” has the feel of a noise punk band doing its interpretation of a western song that could be found on the soundtrack to a Quentin Tarantino movie. Within this mix of ever-mutating noise, TEEN TITS WILD WIVES still manage to bring in some poppy lyrics and catchy melodies. The EP is a great listen, especially if you're looking to get some anger out. Give it a spin: That’s Amore is a not-so-new segment on this here blog where we post about music stuff we like.
