With an outrageous name like Vagina Panther, it’s hard to know what to expect or be prepared what to deal with, but this female-fronted NYC quintet throws everyone a curveball by producing an eclectic mix of Desert Sessions-esque tumbleweed rawk with a sly and self-aware sense of indie rock swagger on their eponymous debut (“Pressure Check”). Robotic rhythms under flashes of acid rock guitar assist this outfit’s in achieving rebellious punk rock flair sharing Pat Benatar and Paramore (“So…How We Gonna Do This?”) but it’s when this sinewy squad’s punchy garage rock gets turned sideways towards the hypnotic end of heavy where the band reaches multi-faceted Queens of the Stone Age meets Yeah Yeah Yeahs type of turbulence (“Please Just Say So”).
