You can call War On Women a lot of things, but subtle isn’t one of them. The debut full-length from this Baltimore based co-ed punk act incorporate elements of everyone from Aus-Rotten to Bikini Kill into a unique musical amalgam that doesn’t protest patriarchy so much as jam the notion of it down the bloated throats of the old guard. Better still, WOW are as catchy as they are fed up. “We will no longer be silent, speak up let your voice be heard,” vocalist Shawna Potter demands on the anti-rape anthem, “Say It.” You’d best listen up. JONAH BAYER
