Certain Summer Cannibals songs remind me a lot of the Breeders’ ’90s albums Pod and Last Splash, with their addictively smooth hooks and powerful female vocals. But to date this Portland band too much would be to do them a disservice, as their latest album, Can’t Tell Me No, plays like a power anthem for the #metoo movement (but, like, one you can dance to). Consider the opening lyrics of the album’s eponymous single: “The fog is lifted, the coast is clear/ I'm jumping higher without you here/Drag me down, you're a weight on my back/There's no saving, just had to get the fuck out.” It takes skill to be that specific, and that universal, at the same time. by Blair Stenvick
