Stream Mannequin Pussy Romantic

Romantic, the sophomore album from Philadelphia punks Mannequin Pussy, blasts through 11 songs in 17 minutes. In that time, they rip through one punk subgenre after another: Full-bore trash-can hardcore, jangling twee, proto-grunge distorto-stomp. It’s a giddy, feverish album, but it’s also a masterfully executed one. It varies its attack, but it keeps that attack raging, never letting up, and it keeps its voice consistent throughout. We made Mannequin Pussy a Band To Watch a few weeks ago for good reason, and we’ve already posted their songs “Emotional High” and “Romantic.” And right now, you can stream the entire short, sharp snot-rocket of an album below, via NPR.

Romantic is out 10/28 on Tiny Engines.
