The Purrs, Telepathic Station Nine

Take the vintage Britpop of Blur and Suede, swirl in some retro psychedelia courtesy of the Brian Jonestown Massacre and tack on the post-punk snarl of Sonic Youth and you’ve got a good idea of what the Purrs sound like. They’ve been playing around Seattle for at least a couple decades, and they’ve developed a knack for sugar-sweet melodies lined with razor blades. The band dropped a new album, Destroy the Sun, earlier this year, and bassist and frontman Jima told KEXP that it’s about “love, loss, crime, hedonism” and “some hints of dystopia.” I saw them at a drunken, sweaty Mootsy’s way back in 2011 and they left us all humming.
