In terms of modern punk bands, fans of Ceremony, Pissed Jeans, and The Men will probably dig these guys. Like those bands, Creative Adult bring in decidedly non-punk influences; in their case it's heavy atmospheres that fall somewhere between post-punk, shoegaze, and Sonic Youth. It makes a lot of sense that they chose Godspeed You! Black Emperor's Efrim Menuck to produce the record.We wrote the above at BV about San Francisco punks Creative Adult's debut album, Psychic Mess, which comes out next week (2/25) via Run for Cover. You can hear it before the release date though, it's streaming in full below.
