SOME GIRLS: The DNA Will Have It: CDEP

Seven songs in a little over six minutes. Comes with a video that shows the band playing, paint being thrown against a wall, and dudes making out. The juxtaposition of the music (a la Combat Wounded Veteran, the Locust, Reversal of Man, etc.) and the album art (super-bright colors, rainbows, a winged bunny with its guts falling out) is brilliant. Charged, frantic hardcore that’s maybe a little too cute and smart for its own good, but I dig it. Karen from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs screeches along with the boys on one song. The typo in the album title is theirs, not mine.
