Check out PYJ 2.0
Working out new songs on a lazy saturday: http://t.co/HZjOwapxkX via @YouTube
"This latest EP by PyJ is a spectacular grunge album that features 6 tracks that will transform your existence in a raw state of blissful agony."
"Overall, this E.P. is a very enjoyable ride that will find favour amongst those whose tastes lean towards left of field and are bored of the cookie-cutter fodder that pollutes the mainstream charts. A strong album could help consolidate their place in the alternative field and PyJ may well develop a strong cult following. Long may they continue their divine madness."
"Reaching out and combining all kinds of various influences and sounds, this track is like listening to TV On The Radio with Serj Tankian guest starring on vocals and Peter Buck lending a hand on guitar. The result is that haunting feeling, coming from the chant-like vocals, familiar in the System Of A Down mellow tunes or Tankian’s solo work. This combination of simple acoustic guitar and the amount of space given in the production result in that eerie feeling you remember hearing when R.E.M. put out “Drive.” Chills – straight up."
"Anyway, Liberty for Wolves is awesome, a standard-length EP (five tracks, most of the them around the three-minute mark) that grinds with nervous fervor. The music is rooted in punk, what with its frictional guitar licks, muddy production and nasty drumming."
“Paul Y Justin – And now for something completely different! Do you like artists like Devo, Ween, and Joy Division? Yes I realize that those artists are very different from one another, but if you can imagine them getting together to make music than you should have an idea of what to expect from this group out of San Diego, CA. The vocals on the song I listened to are Devo through and through. The music sounds like a more aggressive version of Joy Division with heavily distorted electronic elements. Altogether a very interesting band!”
"PyJ is an intriguing band that brings forward a really edgy sound, somewhere in between the grit of the early punk hardcore scene (Think Minutemen, Flipper, Black Flag, Minor Threat), and experimental tones."
"The first time you listen to this album, you might find it a bit confusing and intense. My advice is to keep listening and listening and listening to it. After awhile “2.0″ becomes an unstoppable musical force that infects your inner thoughts. It taps into something so visceral inside you that there is no escaping its grasp, as it evolves into an obsession. The lyrics are essentially philosophical and existential thoughts, in the guise of poetic songs."
"This music is awesome. There is something about it that pulls you in and forces you to rock out."
"I can tell these guys listen to Ween…Devo…maybe even Captain Beefheart. The recording is dirty but it works (especially the very heavy bass), and the choruses are surprisingly big."
"The songs are actually pretty dam good, lots of range spreading from hardcore punk rock to melodic pop like anthems to some sort of progressive tool type band. the bass is super good, I dig the riffs, lots of fuzz..."
"Paul Y Justin bring us an album full of WHATTHEFUCK. It's 14 tracks of psuedo-new wave, psuedo-rock, psuedo-electronica rabble that is sure to stick with you for a while."
“We admire Bad Religion a lot for what they’ve been doing so well for so long. They seemed old when we were 17, so more than 10 years later to continue to rock so hard without compromise is awesome.
I guess for a close second it’d have to be “Bobby Joe Ebola and the Children McNuggets” because they took original and obnoxious to levels unseen. Banging pots and pans and vomiting all over the place, it left a lasting impression. Anything but generic.
