If the apocalyptic album title doesn’t set the tone for The Feels’ sophomore album, there’s this brilliant verse from opening track “Cars”: “All smiles DJT / War dogs on the street / The land of the free / One nation under fraud,” Laena Geronimo sings, adding just the right amount of acidity to the final word. You’d think more rock bands would have stepped up as social commentators the past couple of years; thankfully, thankfully Geronimo, Amy Allen, Michael Perry and (the now-departed) Shannon Lay did. A mix of post-punk and garage-rock, with stinging lyrics and licks worthy of the riot grrrl artists of the past, “Post Earth” assails the present.

The world is burning, and while we’re enjoying our last dances, the people in charge are worrying about whiter teeth. As for the future, the title track wryly wonders about “the one percent’s new life on Mars.” If only they’d leave sooner.

Feels post punk rock + roll whatever band born and raised in Los Angeles, CA and taking the world by storm with the wild energy of their live shows and their 2019 release POST EARTH released on Wichita Recordings. Also check out their Ty Segall produced, self-titled debut LP, released in 2016 on Castle Face Records (LP/CD) and Burger Records (cassette).
