“I struggle with being back in town especially when you’re around,” Alicia Bognanno laments on the quieter verses before the rest of the band kicks in with full power on “Running,” from Losing, the Nashville trio’s latest record on Sub Pop. Bognanno’s coolly delivered lyrical confessions often are bookended by heavier grunge-punk surges and shout-along choruses. “When I’m around you, I try to keep my distance/What I want to do is none of your business,” Bognanno warns on “Kills to Be Resistant,” another declaration of independence powered by surging guitars. Potty Mouth are a similarly exhilarating trio, based now in L.A. after forming at Smith College in Massachusetts. Lead singer Abby Weems shouts out slyly sarcastic tracks such as “Smash Hit” even as she risks drowning herself out with towering pillars of hard-punk guitar.
