Camryn Marquez Check this out if you want to hear a female-fronted band that doesn't care about being female or sounding "pretty". These girls sound like they are pissed off and need to say what it is they are saying. This is the essence of punk, indie, underground, or whatever label elitists want to throw at obscurity. Hail Tiny Knives and their Black Haze.

about

TINY KNIVES cuts deep with Black Haze, their first vinyl release. Fixtures of the Portland underground scene for the last six years, TINY KNIVES combines anarcho-punk with frenzied rock 'n' roll and douses it in avant madness. See-sawing between full-speed-ahead riffage and heavy emotional bulldozing, sprinkled with startling prettiness, the trio coheres these stylistic shifts into a sound that rings familiar bells while resolutely being their own thing. And in the three years since their excellent cassette Static (released on compatriot label Stankhouse) the ladies of TINY KNIVES have clearly sharpened their chops and cranked up the intensity. The rhythm section is a fine-tuned propulsion engine that turns on a dime, built on '77 fundamentals but often veering sideways into strange times and modes, driven by fuzzed-out chords and vocals that shapeshift through brutal growls, rapid-fire shouts, lovely balladeering, and spoken word tirades. Hello ladies.
