CUT UP, THE: The Gateway Drug: CDEP

May 30, 2014

Five songs in seventeen minutes and the whole time I kept thinking, “This sounds like Q And Not U’s first album, No Kill No Beep Beep,with only one singer.” The more I listened to it, the more I thought about how it also sounded like Moving Units and an obscure early 2000s Wisconsin band, Proudentall. If you like any of those acts, or if you feel as though indie rock peaked in 2001, then this is the band for you. It’s not bad, but I’ve got plenty of other music in my collection that sounds similar and I don’t really need any more.
