White Lung - Local Garbage
By Josiah HughesFeaturing members of the Riff Randells and the now-defunct Automatic Fancy, Vancouver’s White Lung combine the restlessness of Wipers-infused garage punk with a messy Kill Rock Stars aesthetic. Local Garbage, the band’s debut seven-inch, goes straight for the jugular, demonstrating the band’s ability to write classic-sounding punk songs with new ideas. "Local Garbage” fills the A-side with a plodding bass line that leaves room for the angular guitar and pissed-off vocals. "Breaking Boxes” starts the B-side with a more melodic approach, replete with infectious guitar work and a pulsing rhythm section. Finishing the record, "Amy White Out” builds off scraped guitar to create a song that’s both angular and memorable. By employing three unique ideas in such a short time, White Lung demonstrate their versatility and suggest big things to come with future releases.
