Bite Into Summer Cannibals 

With AJ Davila and Clarke And The Himselfs and Friends

In the video for Summer Cannibals' "Something New" (Show Us Your Mind, New Moss, March 2015), singer-guitarist Jessica Boudreaux shoots bric-a-brac and mementos of a failed relationship with her trusty Crosman 760 Pumpmaster (one of the finest air guns ever made), gets her hair chopped, her neck tatted, loads up on shots and beer, trashes a coffee shop full of kale-chomping hippies, wins an eating contest and defeats an old scrapper in a knife fight.

Matching the breakup-fueled carnage is a frenetic fuzz-punk score that NPR compares to The Thermals, with which the Portland, Ore.-based foursome has toured, and Sleater Kinney, which has also recorded with Portland engineer Larry Crane.

Comparisons to other bands only go so far; Summer Cannibals has a sound all its own and an oeuvre that goes beyond simply shredding. The band displays true vocal skill, with the kind of heartbreaking, end-of-the-night-in-a-seedy-bar exhaustion that is as melancholy as it is sweet.
