Brown Sugar a play sneering, selfish, masturbatory, ennui-driven hardcore. It makes me think of what might have happened if Die Kreuzen or Void went down in the basement and jammed after a three day bender. It’s good in an anti-hero kind of way. In the same way, Mayday! play ugly, anti-melodic punk with snippy female vocals. I can almost hear The B-52’s “Rock Lobster” buried in the mix of the second song “In It to Win It,” but without the slightest of pop sensibilities and some weird, dare I say, Fugaziesque guitar noodlings.
