AUTISTIC YOUTH: Nonage: LP

Jul 18, 2014

At first blush, this sounds like yer average thud-punk stomper for which Dirtnap seems to have a soft spot, and there is definitely enough of that here to serve as a base. Pay attention, though, and you quickly find they’re hurling a ton of other influences at yer noggin—subtle drone leads, Spector-like bell accents, some metal-tinged guitar duo-leads, multi-part harmonies, and no small amount of dark pop hooks dipped in post-punk eccentricity—all the while keeping the rhythms insistent and pounding. Just when ye think a subgenre’s on the verge of finally burning out, someone adds a new wrinkle. Kudos for some fine work.
