“The album’s title track is exemplary of that control, with alternating sections of calm and mayhem reminiscent of early Sleater-Kinney. It’s a jagged, blistering three and half minutes of intertwining, rhythmic bass and electric riffs and smashing drums.”   Stereogum

“There are shades of late 90s Sleater-Kinney in the loud-quiet-loud of it all, not least in Boudreaux’s voice, snarling at all the right moments.”  Noisey 

“… Summer Cannibals bring raw and driving guitar rock, with shredding from front woman Jessica Boudreaux and an attitude that honors the band’s namesake, a song performed by Patti Smith.”  NPR All Songs Considered

“The band’s latest zooms in with a series of robust guitar chugs, sharpening its already metallic edge.” SPIN

“The wicked wit of the lyrics, the roar of that guitar, and the melodies of sweet & sour confections such as ‘Something New,’ ‘Summer,’ ‘Not Your Turn,’ and the title track are thoroughly addictive.”   Sound Opinions, Jim DeRogatis

“ …refine the fuzzy garage-pop of its debut into something sharper, tighter, and much more difficult to shake off.”  Entertainment Weekly 

 

Portland rock band, Summer Cannibals will release their 3rd full-length LP, Full Of It, out May 27 on the legendary independent label Kill Rock Stars.  Led by guitarist/vocalist Jessica Boudreaux and aided by a new powerhouse rhythm section of drummer Devon Shirley, bassist Jenny Logan and guitarist Marc Swart, the eleven songs spark with that perfect mix of snotty attitude, unbounded energy, and window rattling volume.

 

The four musicians keep their collective foot on the gas pedal, roaring through tunes like the previously shared jagged, wailing opening track “Go Home” and the powerfully melodic “Say My Name”.   Energetic album title track “Full Of It” is an immediate earworm of distorted guitar, growling bass and irresistible vocal licks.
 
The new album Full Of It is the band’s defining statement to date. Recorded at the amazing analog recording studio The Dock with producer Chris Woodhouse (Thee Oh Sees, Wild Flag), the LP is one of those massive leaps forward that has defined the Summer Cannibals sound.
