PANDEMIX: Scale Model of Atrocities: CD

Sep 20, 2017

Pandemix makes dark mid-tempo peace punk that foregrounds political commentary, complete with samples of TV news stories and polemic spoken-word segments. The snotty vocals demonstrate significant range, from raging hoots and woofs, to more plaintive moans, to that special brand of scathing punk oration that typically breaks up live sets or opens tracks that describe a specific kind of suffering or injustice. I appreciate Pandemix’s willingness to take up a position and defend it, sonically and literally, with the formal consistency that political punk demands. It’s an angry record that compels you to share its anger; it makes you want to scream, and that’s the point. –Lyle (Boss Tuneage)
