PERE UBU
WHY I HATE WOMEN
SMOG VEIL

Vanguard avant-garde alt rock act Pere Ubu return with their 15th studio effort WHY I HATE WOMEN. Retaining the band’s trademark dissonance for another go-round, the odd instrumentation and angular riffs and rhythms that adorn cuts like “Texas Overture” and “Mona” flesh out the band’s free-wheeling musical thought patterns, while the whimsical doom that the band projects rears its head across the entire disc, specifically on murky tunes like “Blue Velvet”. Still pushing the didactic musical envelope while blurring the barriers between noise, sound, and music, this 11-track release is a challenging yet rewarding listen to those engrossed in the surreal world of the early days of punk, garage, psychedelic rock, and the first movement of new wave.
