"The new riot grrrl album we so desperately needed this year."
Honeyblood put up a fierce fight with In Plain Sight, the new riot grrrl album we so desperately needed this year. The feminist punk rock sound scuffs up a faint, mock doo-wop base of fuzzy, aching non-melodies, especially prevalent in "A Kiss from the Devil," "The Third Degree," and "Glimmer."
Long-awaited anthems for going to war include "The Tarantella" and "The the Wheel," but are reined back by sincere, smoky ballads "Twisting the Aces" and "Harmless." In Plain Sight is, at its core, unexpectedly bizarre, jagged, and smart, but such an "Of course, that's what it should be; I can't believe I predicted anything different," kind of gift.
