TIMES NEW VIKING
Ohioans with pop melodies all charred and twisted (but no less addictive or affecting for that), leading the latest wave of Midwestern noise-rock mavericks. Their latest album, Rip It Off is their debut for Matador Records, tempering their corrugated tempest not a jot: an overload of ragged harmonies and splintered guitars that’ll fill your heart with a most combustible joy. Live, they’re the same, only moreso.
Nottingham-based noiseniks described in the pages of Plan B as “Kerblammo rock princes”, a fine description for a group given to unexpected explosions of high-exhilaration noise.
Cardiff duo cast a withering eye upon modern Britain, and score that sourness with a mess of drum machine, guitar-screech and murky horn, a bitter symphony that’s most satisfying.
