PLAGUE VENDOR - ‘BLOODSWEAT’ Cover

Dirty, filthy punk rock. 

Snake Hips, soaked in sweat and six-months-unwashed denim is the order of the day here on an album best described as filthy in every regard. Part garage-punk drawl, part desert-rock freak out, these 11 songs mark Plague Vendor out as a band prepared to invite listeners into the dark recesses of their collective imagination in a way that precious few are. Perhaps most crucially, though, ‘Bloodsweat’ never feels like it submits to formula, prone as it is to bursts of both droll introspection an cataclysmic excess, sometimes in the space of one song. An alluring, seductive listen that might take a while to get under your skin, but once there will point blank refuse to leave.
