Potty Mouth, a punk quartet from Northampton, MA (which just seems to be spewing forth great new bands lately), is, as they proudly declare, “all-parts smart-pop craftswomen, specializing in taut, infectious, C-86 influenced indie pop meets ’77 punk perfection.” You really can’t get more accurate than that. This isn’t scrappy pop punk nor boring indie rock — there’s fuzzy guitars, tight-n-clean lead guitar, solid bass, and perfectly tasteful drums all over their songs, which tackle a variety of topics ranging from the Gap to The Truman Show to talking in your sleep. It was a pleasure to have them stop by the studio to play their songs and open up to Travis about their deepest, darkest secrets (or just to say “hi” to Mom).
Featured song: “First Thing”
