Not only will Thunderpussy make you question your life choices, they will teach you life lessons like, “A hard man is good to find,” and “Booty is in the eye of the beholder.” They may be rock n roll’s new diamond in the muff, but they’re not selling sex like a Carl’s Jr. commercial– They are literally whipping you with it, like 80’s Madonna, or dry humping you like a tranced-out Prince. Powerful, sultry vocals tear at your chest while guitar riffs tower over you like a leather clad dominatrix… Salty tears stream down your cheeks in a pleasureful pain as the bass and drums lock in tight to move you, groove you, and wash over you in a hot sweaty bath of sweet, sweet, blues-rock soul… Welcome to Club Pussy.
Last September, local trio Wild Powwers quietly released a booming, potent, and intelligent rock record. Doris Rising boasts heavy, crunching guitars and sinewy percussion, all expertly tempered by gorgeous, forceful vocals. The latter are mainly courtesy of guitar player Lara Hilgemann (formerly of the Peeping Tomboys), but backup vocals throughout the record enhance everything they touch. Bass undercurrents are handled by Jordan Gomes (Sailor Mouth), and the aforementioned drum work is that of the inimitable Lupe Flores (Tacos, the Grizzled Mighty, probably 12 other bands I don’t know about). This is one of those records you put on and then don’t turn off until it’s weeks later and you realize it’s the only thing you’ve been listening to. It’s an addicting affair, and according to Flores, the band is already at work on a new one. Get in now so you can say, “I told you so.” GRANT BRISSEY (The Stranger)
