Male Gaze released ‘Miss Takes’ (listen), touring


San Francisco’s trio Male Gaze released their third album for Castle Face, Miss Takes, earlier this summer. If you like your punk (or post punk) with a wash of gothy glamour and just a touch of surf, you will most certainly dig this. (Think: early-’80s The Damned, Iceage or even Dan Boeckner’s many bands.) Henry Rollins wrote the bio for the album:

“Matt, Mark and Adam, aka Male Gaze, return quickly from the brainy roar of their previous album King Leer with their six heels hanging even further over the edge of the abyss. Good bands often pull punches but the great ones don’t and these charismatically scarred veterans of romance, gear singed from all too real firefights in the dark world of adulthood, lodge ten new slugs into your vest. Your life was spared but you’ll feel every second of the thirty five plus minutes, grateful that all you got was a bruising. Imagine what it did to them! Have you ever flung yourself out there to such a degree that you risked total humiliation if it all went south, to where the next step would be self deportation to some distant island of annihilation in your mind? How did that work out for you? Don’t worry, Male Gaze knows and they wrote some songs about it. Look out your window, down at the glittering metropolis below and listen to this album.” – Henry Rollins

The band will be on tour later this summer, including some East Coast dates. They’ll play two in Brooklyn: Union Pool on September 13 with Russian Baths (tickets) and and The Glove on September 14 (tickets TBA).
