Album Review

The debut album by Chicago's Tyrades (following 2002's Detonation EP) is engagingly sloppy garage punk with female vocals and an unrepentantly old-school sound that recalls the first wave of California punk bands, specifically the Avengers and the Bags. Singer Jenna Tyrade has the kind of alley cat yowl and provocative persona that the Yeah Yeah Yeahs' singularly overhyped, and underperforming, Karen O only wishes she could pull off; her nearly atonal freakouts on songs like the shambolic "Cut Your Feet Off" are pure feral ferocity. Yet, on more straightforward songs like the hyper-speed, X-like "Same Sex Killers," the Tyrades prove a mostly hidden knack for direct, almost poppy, punk rock songs that manage to be catchy without sounding calculated. These nine songs are over in 22 and a half breathless minutes, just enough time to satisfy the class-of-'77 punk spirit.

Customer Reviews

Perfect

Perfect punk rock. The vocals are unbelievable. There is something hilarious about the back-up vocals, like it's her dad singing them or something. I mean that in a great way, they are great. The singer sounds like a hyena vomiting. I am proud of these people. If they do nothing else with their lives they have made a fine record which is more that 99.999999 percent of bands in this world ever accomplishes.

Notable

Garage punk is my favorite genre. I can listen to any garage band, any song, and I totally dig it. I love girl vocals, and I'm a girl in a garage band so the moment I heard about this band called the Tyrades with a crazed frontwoman, I rushed out to buy this album. I am so NOT dissapointed. 1. Money Boy, Money Girl - 5/5 - This is so rock n roll. This was the first song I loved by them. It's got a great riff. 2. Cut Your Feet Off - 4/5 - This is good, more punkish than garage, but the stop start thing they have going is AWESOME. 3. Let Down - 4/5 - Straight up rock song. The back up vocals are cool and a good foil to her freak outs. Great to chant with. 4. Couples - 4/5 - Really cool/funny! Wildly listing couples...classic. 5. Dance Like A Maniac - 5/5 - One of their best. It's perfect for shows but in my opinion its the most garagey song on this album. 6. Same Sex Killers - 5/5 - This is my favorite. Her voice is already amazing, but the first 30 seconds give me goosebumps every single time I hear. Her howl/yelp/wail/scream is just amazing. It goes from guttural to extremely feminine, but in a really bada** way, you know, feminine as in like it's clear it's a girl singing. haha. 7. Message from the Operator - 3/5 - This is one of the more forgettable songs. It sounds a little generic but I must say the bass line is super cool. 8. Plastic Bag Baby - 4/5 - This will appeal to a large audience. So if you don't know where to start then I would say here. 9. I Hate Your Wave - 5/5 - All I can say is FIERCE.

just buy it...

Everyone makes a comparison to X or the Avengers, but their sound is more akin to the Vktms, albeit way more hardcore. They need to re-release a compilation of all their singles ASAP because that's when this band really shines...
