• Shame Parade

I’ve been waiting patiently for local punks Split Feet to release their debut full-length since I caught them live last year (read more about it in this week’s Gossip Wolf), and yesterday they posted the entire thing online. The record, which will be out on tape via Accidental Guest Recordings sometime next month, is called Shame Parade, and it was well worth the wait. It’s a dark and moody postpunk record, full of pushy, aggressive tempos and eerie vibes. And today’s 12 O’Clock Track is my favorite tune from it, “Selective Mommery.” Driven by a fractured guitar lead and a rock-solid rhythm section, it’s a fine moment in female-fronted punk. Check the song out below, and make sure to catch Split Feet tonight at Quenchers when they celebrate Shame Parade‘s release.
