SEX CUTS: Cop Bait: CS

Sex Cuts: kinda this, kinda that. Kinda catchy, kinda noisy. Messy and all over the place. I get albums like this—with one foot in punk and one foot…in other stuff—somewhat frequently and I’m never quite sure what to say. The band shouts vague descriptions of dissatisfaction and “cancel culture” and the interesting arrangements lose a little oomph given the song lengths. I’ve listened to this so many times and I’m still not sure how to describe it. Let’s call it post-punk with a heavy sense of dread and isolation, yeah? –Keith Rosson (Never Understand)
