LOKI THE GRUMP
THE BRINK
JAFZI

NYC’s Loki the Grump play a lo-fi, innocuously catchy version of punk rock judging by the quartet’s five-track sampling THE BRINK. Boasting a female singer who mixes the wares of a pre-tabloid Courtney Love, Shirley Manson, and Joan Jett, the rest of the band ventures off to The Damned by way of No Doubt realm, as songs like “Here I Am” is dark yet retains a pop punk edge throughout. But it’s on the last track “Your War”, taken from a live performance from Acme Underground, that captures the band at its grumpiest, complete with swirling guitars and a stiff shot of vocal angst.
