Girrrrl Power: The Coathangers

There's nothing better than listening to some chicks with serious attitude (especially chicks that would kick my ass for calling them chicks) playing with reckless abandon, fast and furious, cutting to the chase without all the instrumental solos that leave you daydreaming. Atlanta band The Coathangers fits the bill perfectly.

The foursome is set to release their self-titled debut on September 4th, and its 17 tracks weighing in at 31 minutes reminds one of a Ramones album: no playing games, it's all business. In this case, playfully perverse (observe songs titled Don't Touch My Shit, Shut the Fuck Up, and one of my favorites, Nestle In My Boobies, which you can listen to below) irreverent punk is what it's all about, with estrogen powered angst fueling girl-power anthems which will remind you of The Slits and The Donnas.
