Features Song Lyrics for Screaming Females's Ugly album.

Ugly (Screaming Females album). Ugly is the fifth studio album by Screaming Females, released on April 3rd, 2012 by Don Giovanni Records. The record was self produced by the band and engineered by Steve Albini in his studio Electrical Audio. The group embarked on a national tour to support the album on April 7, 2012. All songs written by Screaming Females (Jarrett Dougherty, Mike "King Mike" Abbate, Marissa Paternoster). It All Means Nothing".

Ugly is the most varied Screaming Females record, as evidenced on tracks like "Leave It All Up to Me", which is full of vaguely psychedelic fretboard mystics. Album closer "It's Nice" is a real change-up, a proper Screaming Females ballad, with Paternoster's vocals showcased over orchestral strings, as she sings, presumably, about not selling out ("If I'm bought and sold, then I'm cruising in on a dead end street"). Hell hath no fury like Paternoster on "High", where she is at her most anxious and intimidating.

Working with Steve Albini on their fifth album, Ugly, Screaming Females take full advantage of the raw, biting sound the famed engineer has become known for. With a sound that sits somewhere between Sleater-Kinney and Dinosaur J. the New Jersey power trio delivers yet another batch of high-energy guitar worship that once again makes a strong case for frontwoman Marissa Paternoster being the second coming of J Mascis. Hooky and riff-heavy, Screaming Females are a refreshingly gnarly band in a time when indie rock seems to be getting increasingly precious.

Screaming Females is an American rock band from New Brunswick, New Jersey. They have released seven full-length albums. The band comprises Marissa Paternoster on guitar and vocals, Jarrett Dougherty on drums, and Mike "King Mike" Abbate on bass. The band has been featured on NPR, Last Call with Carson Daly, and MTV. They have played with bands such as Garbage, Throwing Muses, Dinosaur J. The Dead Weather, Arctic Monkeys, Ted Leo & The Pharmacists and The Breeders.

Screaming Females, Ugly.

You would never listen to the Screaming Females if you required calm - if you wanted to be reassured that the world is stable and the ground is level. But their fifth album, Ugly, manages to blend their signature eeriness with catchy, genre-spanning melodies to evoke something both deeply unnerving and intensely satisfying. In the opener, It All Means Nothing, frontwoman Marissa Paternoster immediately grabs your attention with her inimitable vibrato-which comes not only from her voice, but her dueling guitar
