Soft Shoulder – “Hit Single” – [Gilgongo Records]
Soft Shoulder hail from Tempe, Arizona and on this 2006 (or maybe 2007) single “Hit Single” they give us a few short blasts of retro punk-fueled noisy improv. The title track “Maryanne” begins as a noisy improv piece with heavy drums and then segues into retro rock territory, with Ashlea’s punkish lady vocals, then we get saxophone and noise again. It’s a cool journey. The B-side “Temperary” has more female punk vocals, pretty ice cream-truck-like tinkling, sax, and feedbacky guitar. It’s limited to 500 copies and it has a hand-made cover.
