Mommy is a new NYC punk band featuring members of bands we all knew and loved, but I don't want to define them based on their pedigree alone. Unfortunately for you, as a reader, their sound is difficult for me (or anyone) to nail down very easily. It captures the insanity of the best noisecore or noise punk, but not the song structure or tropes of that genre. Vocal patterns resemble old anarcho punk, but it's not that either. Either way, despite what you might think about the name, this band is far from a joke and the lyrical content is some of the darkest I've heard in a long time. Let's just say I'm glad I spent my youth in my basement playing video games and not getting shifted around the country, psych ward to psych ward.
Either way, this is the best NYC punk demo I've heard in a long time and, despite its abrasive nature, I behoove you to become intimate with you. If you desire more Mommy, you're in luck as the band is preparing for a 7" on Toxic State later this year.
