If I had to describe this album, I'd have to say that it takes 80s hardcore, 90s hardcore, early grunge, throws them in a blender, hits puree, and then seasons it with a dash of stoner rock.
Pissed Jeans are the finest of the noise makers on the Sub Pop label, no offense meant to Mudhoney (still making golden records). Honeys is a magnificent follow up to the epic King of Jeans. Honeys finds the 4some experimenting with sounds that could have been lifted from Flipper or Black Flag. Brad Fry has really outdone himself, matching Greg Ginn chop for chop, and Matt Korvette's lyrics rage against the mundane existence of cube dwelling, the every day monotony of a working life we all must succumb to in order to pay the mortgage.
Whether ranting about 'Cafeteria Food,' or fearing ending up living like an old maid in a 'Cat House,' Pissed Jeans make navigating the scuzzy bureaucracy of everyday life a little more bearable. This is grand stuff and I for one can't get enough of 'Teenage Adult,' the final track and in my opinion high water mark, not only for Honeys, but for Pissed Jeans. Honeys is an essential listen and front-runner for my favorite album of 2013.
