At a time when many of her early punk-rock peers are content to look back and linger in a state of permanent punk nostalgia, Alicia Armendariz continues to create new music. On Ms. Bag’s new solo album, Blueprint (Don Giovanni Records), the vocalist evokes her early days fronting punk legends The Bags with such hard-rocking anthems as “White Justice” and “Turn It Up,” but she also varies the pace with the funky digression “Shame Game” and the Spanish-language art-pop idyll “Se Cree Joven.” In the video for “77,” a spirited parody of the 1980 film 9 to 5, a secretarial Bag exchanges sarcastic verses with robo-typists Kathleen Hanna and Allison Wolfe about the pay disparity for women workers while Seth Bogart and Shirley Manson camp it up as evil bosses.
