The North Bay’s Creative Adult already announced their debut album Psychic Mess, which was mixed by Godspeed! You Black Emperor’s Efrin Menuck and is out February 25 via Boston punk label Run for Cover (pre-order here), but on February 10 they premiered a new single from the album called “Far Out” via Noisey and then turned around streamed the complete new release on Absolute Punk late last week. Listen to Psychic Mess in its entirety below.
Creative Adult represents the North Bay’s punk music a posteriori—warbled with fuzzy prog and roaming between moments of rabid thrashing and drowsy, depressed tempos. But, Creative Adult is gradually reaching the plateau of its genre’s local heavyweight (and former tourmates), Ceremony. And, lucky you, they’ve nabbed a couple Noise Pop weekend sets, so you can decide on the up-and-comers for yourself.
They’ve confirmed a couple San Francisco dates: one at Bottom of the Hill supporting No Age, and the other at Hemlock Tavern the following night supporting Buffalo Tooth. The poster they’ve provided (via their own website) lists literally all the details about the shows, and even offers an email address for those underagers to reach out to if they can’t afford first night’s set (the next night’s venue, Hemlock Tavern, is 21+).
