The carefree punk sound of Wimps’ “Super Me” is worth a listen

I love the lighthearted punk vibe of Wimps, a Seattle three-piece whose first LP, “Repeat,” was released in 2013, but are Seattle punk-rock veterans. Wimps have cool nicknames too: Guitarist and vocalist Rachel Ratner is Butts, bassist Matt Nyce is Meth Teeth and drummer Dave Ramm is The Intelligence.

After touring the states in support of “Repeat,” in 2013, they self-released a series of tapes, as well as put out a 7-inch on Help Yourself Records and support for the band grew from there.

Stream their latest five-song cassette EP “Super Me,” which was released Aug. 7 on Kill Rock Stars. A full-length EP is due later in the year.

Here’s the remainder of their tour dates:

08/21 Portland, OR @ Star Theater (w/ Fucked Up)
08/27 Seattle, WA @ Olympic Sculpture Park at Seattle Art Museum*
08/28 Spokane, WA @ Baby Bar*
08/29 Boise, ID @ The Water Cooler*
* w/ Pony Time
