It generally doesn’t get much uglier than PC Worship’s brand of chaotic scuzz and their latest, Social Rust, digs even deeper into that whole. The press release may lay claim to the band getting to “the convential rock formula,” but I’m gonna call bullshit on that straight off. “Rust” is fucking strange. Even with the full band grinding out looping cacaphony beneath Justin Frye’s deadpan monotone, this is sparse. If the world ever turns into some sort of dystopian desert hellscape, PC Worship is gonna be your goddamn soundtrack. Now excuse me while I go rinse the sand out of my teeth.
Social Rust is out September 9th on Northern Spy.
