Civic Mimic is a side-project of Jeff Hersch from the band Glazer. The songs I’ve heard from Glazer to me sound a little like a mix of Parquet Courts and Nirvana. Civic Mimic has a more garage and punk sound. Their new EP Selective Listening reminds me of one of my favorite punk bands of the past ten years: Tenement. I am not saying Civic Mimic is on that level yet, but I am really enjoying songs like Pity Patterns, Business Whip and Grass Placebo. Apparently, Selective Listening is Civic Mimic’s third EP, which is impressive considering their first one was released only nine months ago.
