Perfect Pussy – I have lost all desire for feeling


her eyes fell low and heavy with shame and cum

Four songs in just about 14 minutes are sometimes enough to say what needs to be said. 14 minutes can be enough to make a real statement. Enough, to make your message clear and to let everyone know your intentions. Perfect Pussy (what a name) from Syracuse, NY don’t take a second longer. It’s the intensity of the vocals, the sparse production and the dirty guitar and drums that make this a tour de force. Not even the added synthesizer in “III” can calm the listener down – the two antidromic vocal lines make sure that doesn’t happen. But above all it’s the lyrics that pull you down by your hair, smash you to the floor and keep on kicking you in the teeth.

we’re not standing in the back, we’re safest near the exit

Examples for the quality of the lyrics can be found in all of the songs. It’s almost like every line has the quality to stand by itself. You know these pictures of nature with some wise-ass line written on them? Well, Perfect Pussy could make 100 cards/pictures out of their four songs without a problem. It’s just that the pictures would not be beautiful but a little different. It’s not that there is no beauty in them – rather the opposite in my opinion, but they don’t appear that way at first glance. The honesty is striking: ‘there is a sick grace inherent in healing, it’s like peeling off my skin. It’s like feeling everything for the first time, like it’s finally sinking in.’ or ‘first i was stronger, then i was softer, now i am frightened, look at me now. somehow we managed to make it this far- seems now everything has changed. i don’t want to know.’ You feel every word as if you had written the lines yourself. A trade not a lot of people master.

So no matter what you think about the name or the dirty music. I highly recommend you give this a listen and take the time to read the lyrics. It might just all fall into the perfect place. It did for me. Really looking forward to the new material – whenever it will arrive!
