THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES: The Lion Sleeps When Its Antelope Go Home: CD

Jul 06, 2007

This review could alternately be called Fuck Me, They Put Out a Full Length?, or Sorry Ma, I’ve Got More Things to Shoot At. I could care less what bands these people used to be in; all I care about is the music. It’s angular, vaguely electro-clash, post-punk-inflected pseudo-dance-rock, and that’s a Dagwood of a sentence—what it boils down to is that this band plays noisy, groove-driven songs that people might dance to. Comparisons? Sure, but I didn’t like Girls Against Boys either.
