REC’D MP3: Screaming Females – “Expire”

Screaming Females

New Jersey’s Screaming Females are probably the definition of “power trio” – Marissa Paternoster’s guttural yelp and insane guitar shredding are one thing, but don’t discount the non-female Females’ relentless rhythm section. On their new album Ugly producer Steve Albini brought the glossy brutality (the same he brought to Cloud Nothings’ Attack on Memory, and on, um, Nirvana’s In Utero) in spades to the band’s electrifying, mosh-ready pop-punk, and that shows up perfectly on “Expire,” their latest single. If you’ve seen Screaming Females live recently, you’ll definitely recognize this one’s powerhouse riffage. We guarantee everything, Paternoster’s deconstructed solo and all, will be stuck in your head all day. Ugly drops April 3; you’ll want to play the living daylights out of “Expire” in the meantime. Check it out.
