Eyesore & the Jinx - "Leisure Time"

"Leisure Time," the latest single from Liverpool's Eyesore & the Jinx, brings the noise to post punk. Sure, "Leisure Time" is filled with that groove that is truly the trademark of post punk. But the single also has this underlying noise and menace. The guitar comes rattling in at a rate to be both disturbing and intriguing. And when it finally explodes? Pure uncomfortable bliss. 

Josh Miller of Eyesore & the Jinx has this to say about the song: From the perspective of an unhinged holiday maker, ‘Leisure Time’ points a greasy, heavily lotioned finger at the care-free nature of the British expat. Whose enduring commitment to enjoying themselves, at the expense of other cultures, remains as visible and as grotesque as ever. It is, in short, a sun-stroked blather on the most miserable of holidays.”
