POPULATION: Self-titled: 7”

Sep 19, 2013

Late ‘70s post-punk worshippers. Sometimes I wonder if culture actually stopped in the ‘80s and no one ever noticed, like time isn’t a widening gyre, but a cylinder and we reached the end like thirty years ago. That is the thesis of this record, as far as I can gather. Warbly vocals, tinted with keyboards and drums from a dance party. A pale imitation of a genre that has had much more interesting records that utilized the same formulas.
