The Julie Ruin: Run Fast
Buy! - (TJR)
Former Bikini Kill front woman Kathleen Hanna released a solo album in 1997 under the name Julie Ruin. She’s now resurrected the name for her new band, and they offer up an impressive full-length blending raw garage-punk and catchy New Wave pop with snarling, sometimes surfy guitars, buzzing keyboards and propulsive rhythms accompanying Hanna’s lovably bratty wail and razor-sharp lyrics. 9/6/2013 - Don Yates
