Meat Curtains/Pompoir

Meat Curtains/Pompoir (Isolated Now Waves)

by

comment
A split between two bands taking their names from semi-gross sexual references, Halifax’s Meat Curtains and Vancouver’s Pompoir, this tape keeps the lyrics and sound dirty with sludgy punk rock. The Meat Curtains side features grungy guitars with a post-punk ethos. “Dream Pig” has all the brashness of Hole’s first album, and the scratchy vocals on “Get Rebel” somehow make it the catchiest track. And who wouldn’t support a movement like “Vaginas For Vietnam”? Pompoir’s gothic punk sounds create a layered, soundscape effect. Also winding together grunge and post-punk sounds, the band plays with a loud ’90s-tinged angst.
