Zilched: Pulling Teeth 7″ EP

Detroit trio Zilched play a hazy sort of garage-psych-gaze. While the vocals are sometimes submerged under guitar fuzz and tape hiss, the lyrics are uncomfortably direct, reflecting an inescapable loneliness, even when in the company of others. The chorus to “Tool” laments “I’m so sorry that I get so lonely at night, I can’t help it if I wanted you only”. “From the Grave” is slower and has more of a rumbling bassline, and a slightly more hopeful outlook. The B-side contains “Hollow”, a shambling, jangly indie pop tune which is easily the highlight of the EP. “(hatefucked)” is one of the record’s more upbeat-sounding songs, but the lyrics are actually quite deadly. The group obviously haven’t been around for too long, and they sound pretty shaky, but there’s some exciting songs on here. Digitally available at Bandcamp.
