Review of Trophy Wife’s new record at Sadie Magazine

Sadie Magazine's Fall 2010 issue just launched, featuring my review of Trophy Wife's new record, Patience Fury.
Musically, Patience Fury appeals to my Black Sabbath fan sensibilities as well as fulfilling a lot of what I want out of good punk rock. Ideologically, it is rare that a metal band has a direct relationship to a feminist scene, or feminist politics, and Trophy Wife embodies that relationship. Otto and Foglizzo face each other when playing shows, building off of each other’s energy and connecting in a way that perhaps only two people can. They share personal stories with political ramifications and engage the audience in the conversation. As this is Foglizzo’s first band, Trophy Wife exemplifies creative openness that a DIY approach to music makes possible.
