Bully 7-Inch Release Feat. PUJOL & Study Hall
Adopted Nashvillian and Bully frontwoman Alicia Bognanno’s résumé reads like an indie-rock pipe dream: She has a degree in audio engineering from MTSU, served as an intern for legendary producer Steve Albini at his Electrical Audio recording facility in Chicago, runs sound at The Stone Fox and assists hardworking local recording dude Jeremy Ferguson at his Battle Tapes studio. And it’s at Battle Tapes that Bognanno helmed the recording of Bully’s debut, an eponymous 7-inch featuring four snotty, vivacious punk-pop numbers that are as catchy as they are succinct. Thanks to the record’s fuzzy tones, acerbic lyrics and a warped sort of anti-pop approach, an easy initial reference might be slacker icons The Breeders — a band that, as it happens, is about the same age as Bognanno herself. But there’s depth to Bully’s sneering, angular grunge pop, and whether or not you cast it against a backdrop of ’90s greats like The Breeders — or, say, Whip-Smart-era Liz Phair — it’s pretty damn fun to listen to. Tonight’s bill — an exceptionally well-matched one, if I may say — will be rounded out by Scene faves PUJOL and newcomers Study Hall.
