Last we heard from Philly ‘slop n’ rollers’ The Barren Marys was back in late 2015 when they released their nine track, self titled EP. Since that was over a year ago and we get itchy without some of that distinctive Delaware Valley punk sound, we harassed the terrific trio until they finally broke down and agreed to let us stream their brand new split EP Political Party, exclusively for DS readers! The split, which released today via DIY label Hostile City Records also features fellow Philadelphians Teenage Bigfoot, who we would classify as garage pop if they didn’t throw us a curveball with a fantastic final track which sounds like it could’ve come from a Pat the Bunny album. Now, we just call them talented!
A little birdie told us that The Barren Marys will be hitting the road once the thaw begins so keep an eye on their Facebook page for more details on that. Until then, enjoy five, spankin’ new songs below!
