Daily Yinz – Century III – Hot Feng

Century III is a Pittsburgh trio that specializes in a blown-out, heavily-reverbed take on 60’s surf music.

The group’s latest EP, Here Today, technically came out last fall, but was only released on Spotify a few weeks ago. So, that’s new enough for our purposes! The EP’s second track, “Hot Feng,” centers on Carrie Battle’s sticky, twisty guitar riff and contains several supremely satisfying start-stop-start drum fills, courtesy of Lauren DeLorenze. Clocking in at just over two minutes, the song is a concise, no-frills burst of strutting, psychedelic garage rock. Perfect for a late winter/early spring jamboree on the grimy shores of the Allegheny, Monongahela, and/or Ohio River(s). 60 years on from the 60’s and thousands of miles from California, surf is once again up.
