Led by Atlanta-based songwriter and guitarist Andrew Wiggins—also of sonic sludgemeisters Hawks, and formerly of beloved spazz-rockers Blame Game—and featuring hardcore luminary Bobby Michaud (Double Negative, Brain F≠) on drums, Wymyns Prysyn plays the sort of booze-soaked, punk-inflected garage-rock that should appeal to fans of Hot Snakes or Portland legends the Wipers. The band’s self-titled 7-inch, out earlier this year on Atlanta indie No Breaks Records, was a pummeling and exhilarating outing. Local trio Vincas has been dormant for the better part of a year, so welcome the boys back on the scene. The group’s spaced-out garage-noise is both menacing and spacious, a decidedly punk rock take on psychedelia.
