STEPDADS: Deja Vu: 7”

Jan 20, 2011

I get a feeling off this slab that there is something at play here that I don’t understand. Four songs featuring heavily distorted vocals that blare over repetitive, heavy guitar riffs underscored with minimalist ‘80s drumming. It does not appeal to me, but I think it is representative of that distorted dance music that people in the tight pants and neon, Ray-Ban looking glasses dance around their apartments to between film class and their jobs at Buffalo Exchange. I’m not one hundred percent sure, but I think this is young people’s music. I promised I would not become one of those punks who dismiss everything young people like, but I don’t get it.
