JJCnV just so happens to be one of our favorite punk bands. Ever. So we were super excited to learn they had an EP in the works. Leathered, Weathered, and Feathered is due out later this week. April 4th to be exact. I got a sneak peak of the 7-track release and it promises to be a new favorite.
Fans of the JJCnV will recognize some of the tracks from the band’s live performances. When the trio told us we could pick our favorite for the song premiere, I don’t think they realized the magnitude of that decision-making responsibility. How does one choose between “Crack Baby” and “The Prude Vs. the Buzz”? “This Place is a Lifestyle” and “Gaze Upon Yonder” were also in close contention. The whole thing is far too stellar to choose just one track. But we somehow managed it.
“The Prude Vs. the Buzz” can be heard down below. To get your hands on the complete Leathered, Weathered, and Feathered I suggest heading to the release show happening this Saturday, April 4th, at the Time Out Lounge in Tempe. JJCnV will be performing with French Girls, Shovel, and The Whispering Wires (a band outta Tucson we also love). More info about that event here.
A member of the editorial staff – Mark Anderson, not the one that wrote this review – provides saxophone on the track “Real Boy Appeal”. We just wanted to call that one out.
