Women – Public Strain (Review)


Review of the album.

Women came into the scene in 2008 with their self-titled album.
Since then they have been doing very well touring with Chad Van Gaalen.
That album was filled with lo-fi catchy pop-rock guitar distortion tracks.
On September 28, 2010 they will drop their sophomore release called Public Restrain.
Seems like Public Strain picks off after the first album.
Filled with great noisy lo-fi alterna-pop sound is what we expect from them in tracks in Can’t You See, Heat Distraction, China Steps, Drag Open and Eyesore.
There is a slow dream like sound in Penal Colony, Bells and Venice Lockjaw.
Then the leading single “Eyesore” is a great epic track and sticks to you.
Public Strain is an album conveying the themes of insanity and paranoia.
This is a step up from their debut.
When I listen to them its like listening to the Beach Boys on a acid trip.
Another great album for 2010.

Best tracks:

  • Can’t You See
