Last year, wail-shred virtuoso Maria Paternoster and her Jersey punk band Screaming Females released Ugly, one of the year’s best albums, and toured like demons. Thus far this year, they’ve already followed that one up with the Chalk Tape EP, and they’re about to start a somewhat demon-like month-long tour. They’ve also got a brand-new split-single with the Wisconsin punk band Tenement. The Scremales half of that split is “Ancient Civilization,” nearly six minutes of triumphant DIY psychedelic sludge. There’s not a single band on this planet who does this sound better than Screaming Females do it, and you can hear the song below.
The split 7″ is out now on Recess Records.
