New aquarock: PURLING HISS "Run From the City"

Download: “Run From the City” – Purling Hiss (mp3)


Purling Hiss is pig latin lover Mike Polizze of Philladelphia jammers Birds of Maya laying down some serious ’70s-style aquarock—it’s so submerged you feel like you’ve already got your earplugs in. Nah, that’s just the mix, bro. Right here is “Run From the City”—the title is a great tactical suggestion for contemporary coping; the song itself is, I dunno, Grand Funk meets Skynyrd in a thick cloud, recorded three rooms down. By accident. You can smell it more than you can hear it, if that makes any sense. From the Hiss’s third album Public Service Announcement, being released on vinyl and iTunes by the kind folk at Woodsist.
