UNITED STATES: Divorce Songs: CD

A Brooklyn-based, post-punk band that consists of past members of Bent Outta Shape, The Scent Of Human History, and The Insurgent (among others). I definitely like this release. It’s no Meneguar record but still good. I hear a punky version of Modest Mouse, which could be horrible, but they pull it off. Maybe it’s just the chanting vocals. The band name seems kinda irrelevant to me. Why name yourself after an imperialistic nation? When they stick to their brooding songs it adds another dynamic to the music and comes off more angular and decisive. This is worth checking into.
