When: Tue., April 7, 9 p.m. 2015
Price: $8
In early 2013, the noise-punk weirdos in Spray Paint emerged from the bleak backwoods of Austin with their first LP, and they have since unleashed a constant stream of new music, usually having a record in the can before the previous one has even been released. The remarkable thing about the nonstop output is Spray Paint’s insistence on never repeating themselves. On their upcoming fourth full-length, Punters on a Barge—due out in June on Australian label Homeless Records—they trade the wiry, sketched-out atmosphere for a tougher, sludgier push that pays tribute to Flipper’s skronk and Jesus Lizard’s rhythmic drag. A few tracks in the middle of the record, like “Day of the Rope” and “Yoopy D.B.,” even feature an industrial kind of thrum driven by drum machines and circuit-fried synths. Despite the fresh sounds, there’s no mistaking this for anything other than a Spray Paint record: springy, no-wavey guitars crisscross the mix while the three members chant in unison in a country-fried, acid-casualty drawl. —Luca Cimarusti
