Colleen Green
While Colleen Green’s first LP for Hardly Art, Sock It to Me, was a slice of breezy, self-aware stoner bubblegum that insisted on a shallow read—perhaps to force us to turn away from deeper truths—its follow-up, I Want to Grow Up, is weed paralysis and paranoia in a sugary glaze. (In keeping with her first record, Milo Goes to Compton, Green named I Want To Grow Up after another Descendents song.) On this record, Green has managed to capture in very real and human terms the existential terror that everything is futile and that our lives will never amount to much: no small feat.

Just to let you know. Philadelphia’s Mannequin Pussy shred. So if you don’t like bands that shred… Tread. Lightly..

These three shredful people make the punk rock. You want wails? You got it. Riffs? Check. Thunder booms? Yes, please. Are you also interested in hearing pretty melodies that are sometimes buried under the noise but are there just the same and therefore make the shreds all the more beautiful? How about run-on sentences? Yes. That sounds lovely. I’ll have all that.
