Mailing Bombs, Paying Dues, Checking Eyes, Sipping Cups
This is the first of two posts about bands connected to the Sippy Cup Everything stable this week. Now, I don't know much about Young Mammals - I haven't even heard a single track off their 2010 debut LP Carrots - but this Landlady b/w Optometrist 7" they have out (through Bombs By Mail) is pretty sweet. The balance between intricate melody and noisy breakdowns is an incredibly difficult thing to master, yet this Houston four-piece are having an admirable shot at it. I love the amount of bands that are holding onto the mantra that pop aesthetics and convention can be shoehorned into a loud dynamic - let's hope that these kids stay more on the noise side...
Grab the 7" here.
