Evil Weevil Records is a label from Philadelphia that (sadly) more or less just showed up on my radar. Only after picking up their Big Eyes 7″ in a nearby record store (coming soon) and learning through Noah of DOOMSTAR! that this project even existed, you can now say that I am aware.
One of the first things that caught my eye was that strangely colorful cover art of the new COUSIN BRIAN 7″ (which just goes to show that a cover art is crucial). Their new 7″ is four tracks long of dangerously energetic and twisted garage punk, as there’s definitely a noticeable element of weirdness in their sound. But just because they’re a bit eccentric doesn’t mean they don’t know what they’re doing, because clearly that’s not the case. Between the infectious sing-along melodies of “It’s On Me” or the blazing guitar riffage of “Do Stay Over”, Cousin Brian easily fit in here, no questions asked. I think you’ll agree. Follow the link below for a free download of the full 7″, but just make sure to say thanks. I’ve been told these guys were quite the entertaining bunch when it comes to a live show, so don’t miss out if you get the chance.
