The Deli Philly's May Record of the Month: Love Songs - Residuels

Philly rock ‘n’ rollers Justin Pittney, Mike Cammarata, and Kyle Garvey (a.k.a. Residuels) revamp essential garage cuts on their latest release Love Songs. Available now via Suicide Bong Tapes, the three-piece’s cassette kick-starts with a full-throttle rendition of Rich Berry’s “Have Love Will Travel.” The power trio’s frenetic take on the song that put bands like Thee Headcoatees and Paul Revere & the Raiders on the map is far from derivative. From the very first lick of guitar, Pittney and his bandmates tap into the original fury at the center of “Have Love Will Travel,” using crashing riffs and uninhibited vocals reminiscent of The Gories.
 
Residuels’ take on The Damned’s debut single “New Rose” is similarly inventive, giving listeners an unadulterated taste of the original song’s rhythm and fuzz. Pittney channels Dave Vanian with ease, mimicking the legendary Londoner’s punk-as-fuck diction as if he wrote the track himself. Clocking in at a few seconds shy of three minutes, the second track on Love Songs is arguably one of the best renditions of the ‘76 single.
 

The same could be said for “You’re Gonna Miss Me.” Opening with a guttural scream, the group’s tribute to psych-rock icons The 13th Floor Elevators is perfectly executed, with each chord and clash of cymbal adding to the instrumented intensity of the already well-loved garage classic. “You’re Gonna Miss Me” feels like a stubborn tantrum, the sonic manifestation of the sort of longing that is borne of desperation and pure desire that is mirrored in the album’s closer “It Girl.” Residuels’ jangly styling of one the most lovelorn (and heart-wrenching) tracks on The Brian Jonestown Massacre's fifth LP is equally captivating, despite being one of Love Song’s quietest tracks, leaving listeners smitten. For die-hard fans of garage rock and newcomers alike, Love Songs doesn’t just pay homage to the genre’s past; it celebrates its vibrant present. - Dianca London

Residuels EP Release Show at Bourbon & Branch April 22

Raunchy, raw rippers with a primal howl, Residuels sweat rock ‘n’ roll. Celebrating their latest EP Love Songs via Suicide Bong Tapes, before heading off on a West Coast tour with the Buzzcocks, the power trio unearths an unbending energetic stomp that never goes away because it hits the core. That unfiltered take-it-as-it-is expression tears through all types of terrain - quickly, nastily and unflinchingly. The searching, heady post-punk of Throbbing Chakra helps set the table, stirring up the floating aspects of one’s mind, while the sticky dark synth of Remote Control gets things started. Bourbon & Branch, 705 N. 2nd St., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

Weekend Warrior, January 15 - 17

Johnny Brenda’s is hosting a night of premier Philadelphia garage-punk bands that will (despite the high ceilings) make you feel like you’re at an L.A. basement show circa 1979. Starting the night off is Straw Hats, a noisy band that shares members with the more mild and understated group The Districts, showing just how far their members’ musical breadth reaches. After Straw Hats is The Whips, who apply a layer of rouge to their garage-rock foundation, landing them somewhere in between Dictators-style glam punk and Replacements power pop. Daddy Long Legs is a strangely terrestrial name for an avant space-pop group with a sound and imagination that spans galaxies - and genre. There are some songs that have a whiff of Dirty Projectors style melodic complexity about them, while others thrust straight forward with thick fuzz and a bluesy, Black Keys simplicity. Headlining the event is Residuels, a band with a remarkable resume supporting bands such as The Buzzcocks, The Spits, and The Sonics. Led by Justin Pittney (ex-Moon Women), Residuels harness the disheveled sound of proto-punk inspired garage pioneers of the early 80s like Gun Club and The Cramps, successfully channeling the uninhibited energy of that era’s basement scene and transplanting it into the present day. Keep a watch out for them! Johnny Brenda’s, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $10, 21+ - Bryce Woodcock

New Video: "Enough" (Live) - Residuels

Garage-punk power trio Residuels stopped by WXPN to record a live session. The band also brought along a couple of vintage 16mm cameras to document the visit. Film is pretty damn expensive so the guys had to nail their performance in one take. "Enough" is an unreleased song off the group's forthcoming debut LP, which was recorded with Jeff Zeigler at Uniform Recording. You can also catch Residuels live this Sunday, January 17 headlining Johnny Brenda's.
