PC Worship’s “Paper Song” Will Hit You Like a Bag of Bricks

The noisey Brooklyn quartet announces their fourth LP, Social Rust.

I've seen many a bazillion-act, sweltering, night-long North Brooklyn noise show in my day, but few bands from that environment have stood out to me more than PC Worship, the chaotic-sounding Bushwick four-piece fronted by songwriter and guitarist Justin Frye. Not unlike low-key Western Massachusetts noise-rock legends Supreme Dicks, they've always seemed to be flitting hesitantly around the edges of rock & roll—unable to commit wholeheartedly to it, but brutally decisive in their use of crashing guitars, screaming feedback and other forms of musical shock and awe. Still, I've always found melody to be the band's greatest secret weapon, and fittingly, they've given us a whole lot of it to chew on in "Paper Song," the monolithic single from their upcoming fourth LP, Social Rust. It was recorded over the span of Super Bowl Sunday this year at Downtown Brooklyn venue Roulette, and it's out September 9th via Northern Spy and Dull Tools.
