New Jersey's power-trio
Screaming Females, fronted by Grace Slick-ian vocalist and guitarist
Marissa Paternoster (but featuring a very male rhythm section),
exposed a gritty, savage brand of garage-rock on
Baby Teeth (2007) and
What If Someone Is Watching Their T.V.? (2007).
Power Move (2009) is a nonstop parade of high-octane wild rants,
(with a desperate fury worthy of the Babes In Toyland)
to Buried in the Nude
(with a melody worthy of the Dead Kennedys,
but shrieked like a scalded cat).
Castle Talk (2010) began to limit the excesses of those albums, nodding
the power-ballad (Boss)
and power-pop (I Don't Mind It), although the deranged ska
Ghost Solo still ranked among their most virulent numbers.
Ugly (2012) marked another leap forward in production and playing,
although its conventional hard-rock songs (It All Means Nothing)
can hardly be considered an improvement in ambition or
quality. Still, the catchy power pseudo-ska Expire capitalizes on years
of playing the same idea over and over again.
This is also their least cohesive and least in-your-face collection, probably
because it was not trimmed down to the essential songs.
