On Rides Again, the band flexes its range, with all three members taking on songwriting duties. It results in a dizzying debut from experienced musicians with enough self-awareness to balance muscular riffing (“Turner”) with wry lyrical references to classic country. Album closer “Bobbi” gives the listener a wink and contains a contorted Led Zeppelin rip-off before diving into lyrics about SpongeBob. “Track 7” gives the sense that Cat Piss could write a pretty Mascis-type pop song if they wanted to, but within seconds, Lipsett is screaming over a hellish bassline like he’s wrapped in a straitjacket. Also worth a mention is Plucinski’s “Track 6,” a cut about a made-up spy movie car chase that’s as mighty as it is obnoxious.

But the most consistently gratifying motif on Rides Again is when Plucinski, Lipsett and Wolf join in punishing walls of distortion brutal enough to grind teeth to powder. It’s a sign of a new band that knows its strengths and knows how to keep listeners coming back. Don’t overlook this band because of their name. You might just want to give this Piss a sniff.
