Justin Frye, frontman, chief songwriter, guitarist, and singer for the Brooklyn-based experimental punk rock group PC Worship, recently provided us with a list of his favorite records, which you can find below. Over the past few years, PC Worship has released several albums, including 2014’s Social Rust and 2017’s Buried Wish (two of our personal favorites), to critical acclaim. Frye and other bandmates embrace an unconstrained and freewheeling recording process – often utilizing homemade instruments, including a stripped-down guitar configured with a water bottle to hold up the strings (dubbed a shitar by the band) – and lo-fi recording techniques to create the band’s unique sound. In addition to PC Worship, in 2016, Frye and another Brooklyn-based band, the Parquet Courts, formed the group PCPC – releasing the album Ramsgate via Dull Tools that same year.
This past week, PC Worship released the album Future Phase, which we strongly recommend checking out. For more information on any of the albums below, feel free to click on the associated image (via Amazon).
