Dilemma Rose & The Wailin' Milfs - MILFOLOGY

I first discovered Dilemma Rose & The Wailin' Milfs almost exactly a year ago at a show at Lynch Family Skatepark in Cambridge. I loved their punk, metal, and New Wave Sound, and how as noisy and loud as it was, that it still had this oddly sugarcoated sound to it. Now they're back with a nine song album, MILFOLOGY. The nine songs range from three seconds to four and a half minutes. The songs swing wildly between noisy, screamy, and loud to pure pop, sometimes within the same song. A perfect example of that is "luv that 4 u," which starts off as an unhinged noise punk ? and the Mysterians and then swings into 60's girl group/doo wop and then back again. "PEE AFTER SEX" kind of sounds like early Red Hot Chili Peppers mixed with Sonic Youth and Le Tigre, but much, much better than that sounds. And it includes a killer flute solo. MILFOLOGY also includes their cover of Talking Heads' "Psycho Killer," which was an absolute highlight at last year's show.

You can listen to "luv that 4 u" below. MILFOLOGY is available now via The Pelvic Floor, and can be downloaded over at Bandcamp. For more on Dilemma Rose & The Wailin' Milfs, check out the band on Tumblr.
