Review: The Gossip

The Gossip
“Self-Titled”
(K Records)

For some reason I’m getting this 2000 Gossip release now, but it doesn’’t matter.  This ep sounds as fresh and bad to the proverbial bone as it did 2+ years ago, which is saying a lot given the short lifespan of most hipster indie bands these days.  Wailin’, nasty, blues-damaged punk.  Sassy and sexy and just plain wonderful.  Beth’s vocals are truly marvelous, Nathan’s guitar playing is a down and dirty blast of swampy joy and Kathi’s drumming is spot on perfect.  Yeah, I know you’re supposed to dance, but this is still pretty damn good to just sit and listen to.
