Review: “High,” by Screaming Females


TRACK 5

“High”

From Screaming Females’ Ugly

DON GIOVANNI

Liner notes: Diminutive Marissa Paternoster delivers an uncanny impersonation of a human tornado, unleashing scorching punk-metal guitar riffs as she snarls, “I don’t get high!”

Behind the music: An earlier incarnation of the New Brunswick, New Jersey, band was called Surgery on TV. Screaming Females began in 2005, helping to spawn a thriving DIY scene.
