A questionable name at best but New York’s Pampers bring the fuzz and they bring it heavy. Lots of riffy reverb along with spastic yelps here and there definitely bring to mind Thee Oh Sees but Pampers are significantly less refined which really only adds to their charm. Their debut album on In The Red records is coming out in October and they’re on tour this fall with Purling Hiss as well as The Men, who also have some new music coming out via an Ep of acoustic songs featuring two new tracks along with a couple of alternate takes from the New Moon sessions. That one’s out Oct 15 on the Sacred Bones label. Really looking forward to that triple bill here in Philly at Johnny Brendas. Two tracks from Pampers and a new one from The Men are below for your listening pleasure.
These are The Men tour dates. They play with a shit-ton of good bands. Check your local listings.
