The idea of a ‘remastered’ Pissed Jeans record seems unnecessary at best, detrimental at worst, but Sub Pop’s upcoming reissue of the group’s rare Shallow LP doesn’t scrape too much grime off their dagger-drawing debut. “Boring Girls,” for one, is a brash reminder of how the band burst through the gutter-rock gates swinging, referencing mad men like the Jesus Lizard without carbon-copying their chaos theories. Now we just have to see what the guys produce alongside a masked pro wrestler and one-half of No Age.
