Flesh Wounds, Sick Thoughts, No Love

When: Tue., Dec. 1, 9 p.m. 2015

At the outset, the Carrboro trio Flesh Wounds injected garage rock grooves with punk fury. But as the band has found its footing and built an audience, the group has leaned harder into feral proto-hardcore. April’s In the Mouth is a frenzied flurry of brisk songs, driven by sharp, straightforward drumming, scrappy guitars and frontman Montgomery Morris’ slurred shouts. Songs like “Magazines” mutate the old groove into a sneering stagger, while shorter cuts like “Joy Division Killed My Boner” go for a bullish ground-and-pound. Given Flesh Wounds’ stylistic evolution, its slot on this bill—headlining over the scrappy punk rage of Baltimore’s Sick Thoughts and the jagged hooks of Raleigh’s No Love—makes perfect sense. —Bryan C.
