NOTS: We Are Nots: LP

Not quite sure why these kids get lumped in with the garage crowd, ‘cause, outside of a raw production, I ain’t hearing that. No, what’s currently being directly uploaded to my brain is more akin to some rather aggressively delivered post-punk—primal drumming, simple yet effective structures, chanted monotone vocals, cutting guitar work, and a synth wielded more for noise than melody. The repetitiveness of the proceedings do feel in need of a marked shift in tactics after a while, but ain’t no denying they’re onto something muy interesting and I can’t wait to hear where they take it, or where it takes them.
