ILLS, THE: Get It: 7”

Sep 18, 2013

Sloppy, poppy, raunchy fun. Moments of minuscule connection and blasts of dangling emotions. These are not songs to consider; they say what they mean to say and leave quickly before anyone has a chance to object. The songwriting is barebones even if there is a keyboard, a usual sign of a song wankery. These simple tunes echo the likes of White Lung or God Equals Genocide. There might be a few times where you can guess where the song is going with complete accuracy, but the delivery does each predictable move with justice. Never underestimate a road that has already been mapped. Grade: B+.
