Abe Vigoda: Crush
Buy! - (Post Present Medium)
This musically restless LA band made quite a few waves with their 3rd album, 2008’s tropical-punk Skeleton, but they take yet another left turn on their 4th full-length, a decidedly colder-sounding set of brooding post-punk with sterner melodies, dramatic goth vocals, chilly synths and occasional drum machines. They also do it incredibly well, and Crush sounds like their most consistently strong and fully realized set of songs to date. 8/31/2010 - Don Yates
