Mannequin Pussy

BIOGRAPHY

 

Mannequin Pussy can thrash you, soothe you, blitz you, groove you. The Philadelphia pop-punks have a Pixies-like ability to shift the shape of their sound, making full use of their genre’s dynamic spectrum from gentle pretty singsong to harrowing sonic violence. Their new album Romantic fits more thrilling twists and turns into 17 minutes than most bands can muster over an entire career. And since that music is a vehicle for Marisa Dabice’s compelling internal monologues, it adds up to something more lasting and meaningful than a mere sensory overload.

Some of the songs are headlong bursts of Minor Threat-style old-timey hardcore, and some are towering fuzz-riff monoliths that recall the ’90s moment when the phrase “noise-rock” meant “something that isn’t punk and isn’t metal but could sort of pass for either.” Still, others, like the title track, do that vintage Sonic Youth/Helium/Blonde Redhead thing by oscillatinge between a quiet and vulnerable melody, and a pedal-mash tumult in a way that lends depth to both extremes.
