Dig into this week’s Saturday Alternative playlist! The Fitting Room album was Losing by Bully, out now on Sub Pop Records.

Does the world really need a new grudge rock band? If you were to ask me that question 5 years ago, I’d likely have given you an emphatic “NO.” But here in the increasingly synthetic, ultra-polished present, Alicia Bognanno’s guttural howl is hittin’ the damn spot. Alicia is the ferocious frontwoman for Nashville’s Bully who just released their new album, Losing, on the only label that seems right: Sub Pop Records. Bognanno engineered and produced the album herself, surely using some of the techniques she learned while interning at legendary producer Steve Albini’s studio. That being said, while Bully are reminiscent of the Seattle grunge rock scene that dominated the mainstream in the 90’s, they’re doing so without trying too hard, and Bognanno’s passion, honesty and intensity keep it fresh and take it over the top.
