SIGNAL LOST: Children of the Wasteland: CD

Something different from Prank Records this time around. A label that specializes more in the thrash variety, they diversify with this one. This is a female-led band that is more Vice Squad than the Distillers. Moody and atmospheric like the band Proletariat, or dissonant at times like early Sonic Youth. I find a lot of what I hear this band doing to be similar to the latest Harum Scarum LP by reaching out past the cookie cutter parameters of punk and trying to achieve the anger of the genre without having to play a million miles a minute. Dark and gloomy songs that are well done.
