The Coathangers

The Coathangers (MySpace) are like the girl version of the Black Lips. Both bands hail from Atlanta, both are punky and vicious; both play rough-cut garage-y tunes; and both rock hard, man.

The band's being compared to the Slits and the Raincoats (the Coathangers for the Raincoats, perhaps?), and I'd say they parallel both. They seem angry feminist ("Nestle In My Boobies" and "Don't Touch My Shit" being two prime examples of where exactly they're coming from), and I love it. Short, brash, to-the-point, and instantly hooky. They'll make you jump up and down like a lunatic for precisely two minutes, and then, unfortunately, that's enough.

The self-titled LP is out on Rob's House Records on September 4. Keep an eye out for that one, but in the mean time, dig 'em below.
the Coathangers - Shut the Fuck Up
the Coathangers - Don't Touch My Shit
