Thin Lips-Divorce Year Cs. (2015)

Country: USA
Genre: Punk, Grunge, Lo-Fi
Label: Seagreen Records
Tracks: 4
Length: 9.0'

I was on vacation last week in Portland, Maine and decided to check out a show at the Space in downtown Portland.  The show on May 7th featured Thin Lips along with headliners Hop Along and opening band Buddsky.  Thin Lips really blew my mind live, so I definitely had to review their new cassette on the blog.  Thin Lips are a three piece band from Philadelphia, PA who formed in 2013.  Thin Lips features members of The Dangerous Ponies and cite Dogs on Acid, Algernon Cadwallader, Hop Along, The Weaks, Manners, Amanda X, Waxahatchee, Radiator Hospital, and The Extraordinaires as influences or artists Thin Lips are inspired by.  Thin Lips play a killer style of chunky, riff laden punk and grunge rock with a cool lo-fi vibe.  Thin Lips essentially take the chunky guitar riffs of bands like California X and filter that sound through the melody of bands such as Lemuria.  Divorce Year is the band's latest four track cassette, which was released via Seagreen records on May 1st, 2015.  Overall, Divorce Year is a killer EP and should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
