have the stateside release of their self-titled debut out today via SideOne Dummy
. I've been listening to it pretty regularly since I was turned onto them by Wade from Black on Black, because it's a monster stereo record -- it's the sort of thing you put on, and just steadily crank the volume until things are rattling on shelves and your ears are ringing. It's exuberant and raucous and holyfuckingshit have you heard "Reservoir"?
If that doesn't make you want to go driving extraordinarily fast and pump your fist, you're dead inside. This might be my favorite song in years. It comes on, and I find myself ignoring the rest of the album to just repeat it over and over and over and over ... which is both a joy and a shame, because the song is just that
fucking good, but the rest of the album is also excellent.
You can buy it on either black or white vinyl, along with CD and a bunch of packages, from the SideOne Dummy store
. PUP's headed out on tour
with Lemuria, Cayetana, and the Menzingers soon -- go see them, because the tour's not hitting Lawrence or Kansas City, so I fucking can't.
