pleasureboaters: gross
Buy! - (Don't Stop Believin')
This young Seattle band has already garnered plenty of raves for their incendiary live shows, and they’re bound to turn even more heads with this scorcher of a debut album. Gross is a bracing listen, combining postpunk-influenced dance-rock with aggressive garage-punk and angular Fugazi hardcore into an intricate sonic maelstrom that’s still catchy and danceable enough to move the crowd. While you might hear bits of pioneering noise-rockers ranging from Sonic Youth and James Chance to Big Black and Drive Like Jehu, they combine it all into something truly special. 8/8/2007 - Don Yates
