Big Neck (2017)
This 7" is the last one left out of the package that Big Neck sent me to review. I didn't leave it for last for any specific reason. It's not my least favorite of the Big Neck records I received, though I can't quite say I've saved the best for last either. It's actually just a pretty solid, easy to listen to 7".
The Hussy is pumping our treble heavy guitar mixed in with an abundance of raw energy and fast paced drumming. The songs have a pretty straightforward pop catchiness to them, but it's rammed through a meat grinder of fuzz, keeping it rough and ready. A side "I See Just Fine" rests on the strength of a hooky, repeated guitar lead and the lost-in-a-cave vocals that tie everything together. I don't love the breakdown in the middle where a bunch of sampled dialog drifts through the song, but other than that, it's a hit.
There's two songs on the B side, but the second one "Better Stuff" is the highlight. It's a short, fast blast of garage-y pop punk. It feels like the entire song is a chorus, with its super catchy vocal melody and bouncy drumming. It may be the best thing on the 7" and I wish it were twice as long as it is. I wasn't really familiar with Hussy prior to checking out this 7", but this 7" of their's is pretty good stuff.
