Published on The Deli Philadelphia – Friday, January 20, 2012

Purling Hiss is a raging erection of rock ‘n’ roll – of pissed jeans, whiskey teeth and stoner garage that slithers, shakes and convulses in a bright fury of heavy groove. You can say it’s what you’d expect from someone (and by someone, I mean Purling Hiss’ mastermind, Mike Polizze) who spends time in Birds of Maya and chills with Kurt Vile, but, in Purling Hiss, Polizze stands on his own, digging his heels and making his own graphic mark (if anything, their releases – self-titled Purling Hiss (Permanent Records), Hissteria (Richie Records), Public Service Announcement (Woodsist)and last year’s Lounge Lizards (Mexican Summer)EP – are intense, breathless, gritty testaments to that). See so for yourself at West Philly’s Pilam tonight, where he’ll bring the heat with New Jersey’s Liquor Store, Home Blitz and DC’s Foul Swoops. You’ll walk away feeling blown. Pilam, 3914 Spruce St., 8pm, $7 – Annamarya Scaccia
