As the August 18th release date of their new album, Spin, approaches the indie-rock duo Tigers Jaw have announced details of an August UK tour with Culture Abuse. Spin represents the first collection of songs that was completely written and recorded solely by Tigers Jaw, and also the first time they had a full month in the studio without having to worry about outside responsibilities. From the sweetly syncopated, fuzzed-out bliss of the opener, Follows, to the mid-tempo melodicism of June and liltingly lovely ballad Bullet, Spin sees Tigers Jaw stretching out sonically.
San Francisco’s Culture Abuse recently signed to Epitaph Records and have now shared a video for their summer anthem, So Busted. Culture Abuse released their debut album in late 2016, Peach is an eclectic album that sees the band lean full tilt into garage punk, throwing keyboards and even the occasional string arrangement on top of their distorted attack. With their music and fun-first approach, Culture Abuse just wants to spread their message of being free, enjoying life and sharing love.

There a few finer things in life than discovering an excellent album on a lazy sunny Saturday morning, and I’m glad to report that San Francisco’s Culture Abuse have done just that. The infectious hook laden punk inspired garage rock contained on Peach is as welcome as my first cup of coffee, and even my first cigarette of the day.
The opening three tracks Chinatown, Jealous and Dream On would be a perfect start to any album, all three are uptempo bouncy and delicious, this trio of songs alone make the album worth your time and money but there is so much more goodness to come. By their own admission this is a band that likes to have a good time and this attitude really comes across throughout Peach. The bio on their bandcamp states they are “kinda grunge, kinda punk, kinda hardcore, definitely a good time. yes, we like to party.” and I can’t think of a better way of summing up this Californian sextet. Culture Abuse seem to channel the poppier sensibilities of the first wave of punk and combine them with the harder edge of Grunge and Hardcore, but somehow remain upbeat and melodic the whole time.
Yuckies is the stand out track for me, a song that firmly wedges itself in your subconscious and one which has had been played repeatedly this morning, it’s an anthem for just letting people live the lives they want to live, and what finer sentiment could there be? The only track on the album that didn’t grab me is the brief confused intermission of Living In The City but this is so short it’s over before you’ve made your mind up whether to get up off the couch and skip to the next song, so it’s only a brief blip in what is a near perfect debut album. The production on Peach sounds a little rough and ready and has a slightly claustrophobic feel to it but this works so well with the material that I can only assume this was intended.
This is a rare beast as Peach has a timeless quality, it wouldn’t have sounded out of place in any of the scenes that punk spawned over the last four decades and I can only imagine it will continue to sound as good. this is an aptly named release as this is an absolute Peach of a debut album
You can purchase Peach, and to be honest I think you should, here.
