PIRATE PRUDE-Pillowcore

Posted: November 11, 2007 by dillion in Indie, Indie rock, MP3, Music

Pirate Prude may not have made the best album I’ve heard all year, but they’ve certainly picked the best name for an album: Pillowcore. At least, that’s how these songs have been tagged. According to band-member Mark Freifeld, though, some or all of the songs are demos for a what he says will be a “concept” album modeled after Exile in Guyville, which was modeled after Exile on Main Street. He says he’s hit a $$$ snag, so he’s trying to find a backer.

The songs do sound quite a bit like a male Liz Phair (her early work, not her recent sugar pop). And that’s a good thing. Rough, grimey, sludgy, aggressive alt-rock.

Definitely worth your eartime. Give it a check.
