Fu­neral Party: in­tox­i­cat­ing and in­tox­i­cated

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Music -

This is how you kick out the jams, dude. East LA’s Fu­neral Party are five trash-talk­ing brats liv­ing high on the hog and pro­duc­ing co­pi­ous amounts of slam­ming post-punk in­die-dance rock. They sound both in­tox­i­cat­ing and in­tox­i­cated, mak­ing them the best kind of trou­ble to come out of LA in yonks. Or, at least, the best kind of trou­ble you can get from a band who take their name from a Cure tune.

Be­gin your in­ves­ti­ga­tion into the band by check­ing out the three snotty an­thems on their ³Boot­leg EP². ³Chal­ice² and ³Car­wars² roar out of the traps, build up a mag­nif­i­cent head of steam (thanks to Chad El­liott’s raspy vo­cal growl) and then ig­nite with fan­tas­tic fury.
