EDITORS’ NOTES

Pissed Jeans have spent more than a decade transforming ugliness into an ideal. Savage and smart, Why Love Now catalogs the drudgery of modern life (desk work, webcams) with unsettling acuity—the musical equivalent of grease stains in high definition. “Have you ever been furniture?” singer Matt Korvette roars, invoking a history of sludgy cynics from Flipper and early Black Flag to contemporaries like Harvey Milk. In Korvette’s outlook, the furniture question is rhetorical—we all have.
