Purling Hiss

#sxsw #PurlingHiss


Listen to Voices

Purling Hiss’ Mike Polizze has put in much time in the fried Philly blooze overdrive of the group Birds of Maya, but in his own vehicle he’s expanded his grotty guitar wailing into the further cosmos, still shredding speakers aplenty. With new releases out on Richie and Woodsist Records, and a previous LP on Permanent, Purling Hiss became a full-fledged touring unit in 2010. Revealing themselves as not only purveyors of Rallizes Denudes/Vermonster-style guitar jams, they also embrace a serious 90’s grunge/pop ethic not too far removed from bits of Bleach-era Nirvana. Lots of ooh-oohs to coincide with the growls, severe hooks to get lodged in your cranium.
