I got pretty excited to hear Babes in Toyland are releasing new material. I got even more excited to discover an up and coming band exuding the same raw, unfalteringly visceral Riot Grrrl energy.
Brooklyn-based fascism-overthrowing Queercore Punk artist Choked Up has recently released their latest single “Home”. The bouncing rhythms make it all too easy to share in the same dynamic energy of the track while the guitar solos make it all too evident that that Choked Up is a powerhouse outfit.
There’s a rarely found expressive animation within Cristy C. Road’s vocals which is boundlessly resonant. If you’re looking for empowering tracks to add to your playlists, it’s safe to say that there are few as efficacious in enabling you to harness your angst as Home.
