Purling Hiss – “Learning Slowly”

The longtime Philly lo-fi bashers Purling Hiss are getting ready to release a new album called Weirdon, and at least based on the early track “Learning Slowly,” the album may be the most accessible work of the band’s career. “Learning Slowly” is piled with rickety drums and wildly overlapping guitar leads, but it’s also a big and triumphant and immediate rock song, and there’s something fundamentally catchy about its sense of propulsion. Listen to it below.

Weirdon is out 9/23 on Drag City.
