New Jersey punks Screaming Females will unleash “Rose Mountain” early next year, a record that’s bound to be a total shit-kicker. The single Ripe,” the band shared a live performance of the song. Lance Bangs has directed an impressive roster of videos, the most recent of which was for Kim Deal’s new track Biker Gone,” and he helmed the forthcoming Slint documentary Breadcrumb Trail. This is a high-contrast, stark video — the carefully coordinated cinematography rubs up against Screaming Females’ purposefully raw sound. Although the audio was professionally recorded, the band chose to not overdub it, maintaining some auditory semblance to a live performance. Maybe it always looks this way, but Marissa Paternoster’s guitar appears to be speckled with blood as she tears through the song’s absurdly awesome inaugural riff.
