AUDIO: Jazzcore Friction – “Hemipenes”
Rock and roll band Jazzcore Friction, formerly known as The Red Flags, are out with their first album under the new name. They decided to rename the band once they found themselves stylistically shifting. They’re overtly political here, channeling anger over having to vote for “the lesser of two dicks”; the record’s title refers to snakes having two penises, which they’ve cleverly used as a metaphor for the bipartisan American system. With punk grit and garage rock vitality, Jazzcore Friction make no compromises about where they stand and how they feel. We look forward to seeing this band bring these songs to life in person someday soon.
