We heard from Brooklyn/Jersey City punk trio Vomitface when they released their self-titled debut LP on puke-green vinyl last year, and now they’re back with the equally filthy Another Bad Year EP. While they’ve preserved their head-bludgeoning guitar riffs and sardonic lyricism, these five new songs are tighter and more complicated. The songs are more melodic, and frontman Jared Micah’s lyrics are sharper and slyer than before. Standout track “Did She Come Alone” exemplifies the trio’s finesse as they veer between jangly pop-punk and distortion-fueled grunge. After just one listen, their self-professed “black-surf avant-grunge sludge-pop” genre seems pretty fitting. Stream the EP below.
