Everything is unsettling in the world of Egrets on Ergot. When frontman Adam Brooks isn’t squawking rude exclamations on his sax, he’s chanting paranoid poetry over Matt Sherin’s rumbling drums. Guitarist Heather Galipo tears up the surreal scenery with serrated noise, and the overall unsettling feeling recalls the post-punk jaggedness of God and the State and Anus the Menace, mixed with hints of Christian Death gloom and Ian Curtis phrasing. “Something’s bound to go wrong,” Brooks warns aptly enough against the careening riffs of “Not in My Back Yard.” Feral Kizzy are more direct, with a hard-rocking crunch of punk guitars leavened by Kizzy Kirk’s darkly melodic vocals. On the Long Beach group’s recent album Slick Little Girl, Kirk alternates punk broadsides (“Lapdog Apparition”) with dream-pop grandeur (“Sally and the Emcee”).
