Three songs into Half Divorced, the sixth album from long-running Philadelphia noise-punk band Pissed Jeans, we’re really hitting a groove. Drums hit like nutpunches. Guitars squall and splatter. If you heard the bass tone while driving, it would cause you to pull over and call a mechanic immediately. Singer Matt Korvette sounds like a kodiak bear who’s been laid off from his job wherever kodiak bears work and who just found out that his severance check didn’t come through. It’s some real prime ’90s sludge ugliness, the type of thing that you might pull from the second side a half-forgotten Amphetamine Reptile compilation, until you notice the words that Korvette is belching out: “Guess you’re a helicopter parent! Figure it out, man! You’re just a helicopter parent! And that’s one thing I cannot stand!”

If I remember right, the Jesus Lizard never got mad about helicopter parents. Neither did Unsane or Cows or Drive Like Jehu or Surgery or any of the other bands who were making pulverizing, misanthropic post-hardcore during my younger years. I’m pretty sure that the term “helicopter parent” didn’t exist in the ’90s — or, if it did, it certainly wasn’t a buzzword. Parenting philosophies were different then. Parents were finding entirely different ways to fuck their kids up. We don’t have the same noise-rock infrastructure today that we had in the ’90s, but noise-rock bands still exist. These days, they can get mad about entirely new subjects — things like helicopter parentsAs feral, art-damaged post-hardcore shredding goes, you can’t ask for better than Pissed Jeans. They’re so deft at merging zigzag bass, machine-gun guitar, assaultive vocals, and concrete mixer percussion that it doesn’t even seem strange to be listening to middle-aged dudes ripping teenage sounds. Who knows, PIssed Jeans might soon soundtrack a commercial for blood pressure meds? The pounding Half Divorced is, in fact, a template for how to be brutish, loud, and brash without also being a repugnant, lib-trolling rube. Having an actually sharp sense of humor goes a long way, while channeling Helmet by way of Black Flag with Dez and Greg does the rest of the work.

Frontman Matt Korvette brings an unexpected array of diversity to their sixth album. Some tunes are more metal, others veer towards the brain-damaged realms of Flipper, and several songs could be new workout anthems or blistering buzzsaw bangers to mow the lawn too fast by. The delightful skanker “Everywhere is Bad” is seriously more hilarious than your old Suicidal Tendencies or Circle Jerks songs. And “Anti Sapio,” with its nearly Oi! song structure and vocals, is such a joy—in part because you don’t need to run down an internet search to make sure the lyrics aren’t something retrograde or worse. The production deliberately shifts with each song, too, making it one for the headphones crew. – Mike McGonigal
