  • Description

    Founded in 2017, Mechanical Canine has taken on a variety of lineups as they've bounced around their hometown of Philadelphia, PA. For their second LP , Walls Covered In Mildew, Mechanical Canine has settled into a lineup that they can thrive in, firing off a gnarled up brew of psych, punk and power pop. Chippy synths and electronic drums set the tone for the uptempo indie punk of "Go Kick Rocks!" or the bodacious psych punk of "Chuzz-wuzzers".

    Thematically, Walls Covered in Mildew barrels past introspection into hypochondriac anxiety and morbid self-deprecation, all handled with a healthy degree of snark. The sneering delivery of tracks like "Fill Up Ur Cup" and "Boaking" cut the darkness with the levity of a B-movie horror that knows it's a little camp. Mechanical Canine is not a silly band, but on Walls Covered in Mildew, they deliver their frantic, anxious emo with a devious smirk.
