Chicago trio Primitive Teeth may play a classic style of punk (straightforward and accessible, with a dark edge and a little bit of swagger), but their subject matter feels utterly of our time. “Chemistry of Decay” seems to mock climate change deniers and the ineffectual global leaders who refuse to take adequate steps to protect our planet. “Don’t, don’t worry about it / Bury it six feet down / It’s someone else’s problem / We won’t be around,” vocalist Christine Wolf bellows. “Beyond the Right,” an emotional track, and also the longest, ruminates on how complex and emotionally draining family relationships can be. Opener “Plastic” is a clear highlight, its lyrics dealing with a problem that writers and musicians have been grappling with since day one: love gone wrong. At least at the hands of Primitive Teeth, you can pogo that toxicity away. -Bandcamp.
