Wimps' Debut LP Repeat Is Riotous Good Fun

Repeat

End of Time Records

The first full-length from the punk trio of Rachel Ratner, Matt Nyce, and Dave Ramm (and the first release from Sarah Moody's End of Time Records) is a propulsive collection of short, riotously fun songs. Highlights include the squiggly guitar noodling on "Slept In Late,", the sturdy, clangorous riffs on "Wet Cardboard," the chanty chorus of "Hello Frustration," and the cleverly impassive lyrics on nearly every track.

Ratner sings in an impetuous rallying cry that's perfectly suited to the snotty songs she writes: "When your life seems stuck on repeat/Eat sleep eat sleep eat sleep," she sings on the title track as Nyce yelps along in the background. "You're not an alien/Don't like yourself at all/Why not try something new/Like answer when I call," she bristles on "UFO." It's blasé with a barb. Repeat clocks in at just under 24 minutes--a brevity that only encourages, as its title suggests, repeat listens.

Repeat is out today and available for purchase on vinyl.

Wimps will play a release show at the Black Lodge this Saturday, January 26. Trashies, Stickers, Big Eyes, and Loud Eyes will also play. Tonight, Linda's is hosting a Wimps listening party at 9 p.m.
