If I were to describe Future Primitive's sound in just two words, the words I'd use would probably be 'fucking nuts'. This 4-piece from North Carolina has been around for no more than 4 months but they sound like they've been playing their unique brand of unrelentingly fast melodic hardcore together for years. Don't believe me? Listen to the demo they just put up on their Bandcamp page - it's free to stream and download, but I highly recommend throwing a few bucks their way to help 'em put out a proper release!

Tigers Jaw will keep doing what they do. No matter who’s in their line-up. It’ll be authentic, raw, poppy punk with earnest soul and heartfelt emotion – all meted out via catchy, anthemic beats and melodic tunes to foot-tap and head-bob to. The sway of Charmer reaffirms this in the truest sense. It’s a record in which they don’t reinvent the wheel but instead opt to stick to their basics while churning out their strengths with endearing purpose. It feels free and with less restriction, Tigers Jaw blooms.
Songs like “Cool” and “Hum” feel breezy yet very indie. A lot of this album feels like some tracks were sped up to fit some sort of novel which they wanted Charmer to be. It’s laid-back and these tracks signify why this pattern is kept – Tigers Jaw wanted to keep their original sound but more tapered and melodramatic, which will stay the course of their discography, despite the number of bands in their circle varying their respective sounds. Tigers Jaw stick to slower tempos more here but at day’s end, it’s a reassured and nifty vibe that enhances the listen.
It’s overall a calmer and minimal sound – toned with simple yet palpable instrumentation. “Nervous Kids” adds that garage/demo feel for good measure as well to show while there’s room for a little flair, there’s no need to skip the dirty sound that made them what they are. At times, the emo vibe does overwhelm, but it’s neat to see homages to R.E.M. and a few 80′s era bands a la “I Envy Your Apathy”. However, in assessing the record as a whole, it boils down to a tale of two halves with the first half of the record much stronger than the second. The latter feels a bit spread-too-thin and somewhat anticlimactic. It doesn’t have the non-linear energy of the earlier portions and loses steam a bit, but not enough to detract that much. Sure, it wanes but there’s still a lot of positive to take.
Overall, Charmer is a highly recommended listen because it’s a good gauge of how far they’ve come and how much they’ve matured. Tigers Jaw has evolved for the better and I think it’s down to the non-complexity of their sound which allows the canvas for this growth – lyrically and musically.

Last night during Tigers Jaw‘s headlining performance in NYC, a fan jumped on stage and attempted to kiss band member Brianna Collins. This event came after a fan did the exact same thing during the opener’s (Pity Sex) set. Now Collins has released a statement regarding these events. It’s incredibly disturbing that someone could have this sense of entitlement to begin with, and Collins shouldn’t even have to make a statement, but since the human race is full of disappointments it is worth repeating: do not touch someone without their consent. Here’s her full statement:

Last night at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, someone came on stage and very forcibly tried to kiss me, and actually did kiss Britty [Drake, of Pity Sex] while she was playing. Another person from the tour was kissed while taking a photo… This tour is the first time something like this has happened to me, and I definitely feel responsible to say something.
IT IS NEVER OKAY TO TOUCH SOMEONE WITHOUT THEIR CONSENT. Ever. I felt so upset and violated, as did the others who this happened to.. Touching someone without their consent is not only upsetting for that person, but is also a crime. We all need to respect each other’s space — whether it’s someone in the band or someone crowd surfing. I just want to play music with my friends and I shouldn’t have to be worried whether or not every person stage diving is going to do something like that. I don’t want it to come down to having to say that there’s no stage diving allowed at our shows, but if stuff like this keeps happening and I feel unsafe and uncomfortable when we play, I don’t know any other solution.
So please – DO NOT EVER touch/kiss/grab someone that has not given you consent to do so. You are not entitled to that no matter what the situation is. Be a decent human being and keep your hands to yourself.
