Brant Heflin I somehow forgot this band after seeing them live. THE SHAME. ‘Bear’ is 5 songs in one and ‘Laundry’ is a full song at just over a minute. WHAT?! This band is a super sound melding machine that has no limits. The Playdoh Fun Factory of punk. Favorite track: Heather Doubtfire.

The Jealous Cactus When I first saw the video for Hungry Sam I couldn't tell if I liked it or I was just stoned. Upon listening to it sober I can confirm that I do really like this band. I think they're gonna get bigger, and glad to get into them early enough to get their limited edition pink vinyl. Favorite track: Hungry Sam.

about

Los Angeles punk quartet The Paranoyds channel revelry and revulsion into their debut album Carnage Bargain—a raucous blend of garage rock grit, new wave swagger, horror film soundtrack campiness, and a myriad of other influences.

The Paranoyds’ beginnings can be traced back to a friendship forged between Staz Lindes and Laila Hashemi in their teens. With the additions of Lexi Funston and David Ruiz, the band found the personnel for their sonic balance of jubilant energy and foreboding undercurrents. Carnage Bargain captures this chemistry through guitar-and-keyboard, genre-mashing weirdness on “Laundry,” the fever-dream kitsch of B-52s on “Ratboy,” krautrock’s motorik groove on “Hungry Sam”, and Blondie on the sweet-and-salty highlight “Courtney.”

Title track “Carnage Bargain” is a perfect example of the band delivering scathing lyrical observations under the guise of a quirky pop hook. The notion of rejecting the status quo and creating your own destiny is evident on the lead single “Girlfriend Degree,” which the band calls an ode to “being a badass woman who’s taking time to make sure she’s doing things for herself.” The band may be paranoid, but they offer a solution to our modern ills through the act of being an inspiring, independent, and unflappable force.
