Creative Adult ready ‘Bulls in the Yard’ (stream a track)
Somewhere in between the maniacal noise-punk of Pissed Jeans and the propulsive post-punk of Joy Division/Bauhaus lies Creative Adult, a Bay Area four piece prepping to let loose their new EP, Bull In The Yard, via Run for Cover Records. The release is their second overall, following the Dead Air 7" which dropped late last year.
Though a quick gloss over their material may point to the band's punkier side, CA definitely takes their tunes in interesting places by dabbling in noise, goth and the louder side of indie. In fact, the opening notes of "Rushing Toward The Cemetery" steers dangerously close to the opening bars of the Sonic Youth classic "Teen Age Riot." Check out that tune for the first time below and order your copy via the label.
So far the band only have a single date to speak of, April 26 in Oakland, CA at Eli's with Sabertooth Zombie, but look for shows to be announced in the coming weeks in celebration of the new EP. Until then, dig on the new jam below.
