Stream: Criminal Hygiene, "Withdrawn"

Here's a new one from rowdy garage rockers, Criminal Hygiene. We last caught up with them in an interview feature after the release of their debut self-titled LP. Since then, they've had a shift in personnel, without losing their signature sound. This new tune, "Withdrawn," sticks to the "riff-raff wrapped in a pop tune" formula, but strays from their debut's lo-fi, one take, beer slamming edge. The bridge is actually quite reminscent of early skuffle-era Beatles, while the chorus is solidly rooted in their Replacements influence. Still, their punk-ly concise execution rings true and there's an undeniable charm in everything they do. Stream "Withdrawn" below, and check out their March tour dates with The Orwells and Twin Peaks. - Jacqueline Caruso
