For Fans Of: Dum Dum Girls x Vivian Girls + Girls, Wavves + surf rock + girl groups.
Hot Water Music
Sounds Like: The Gainseville post-punks’ eighth and first in eight years is as solid as the rest of their discography; classically angry, loud, cathartic and a little screamy.
Free Association: They are the bridge between simply loud rock and balls-out punk.
For Fans Of: Leatherface/Fugazi + Husker Du, Jawbreaker x Against Me!, volume.
Sounds Like: The sickly produced (by El-P) thuggish, ruggish return to prominence for the OutKast associate is harder and sicker than anyone ever dreamed he could be.
Free Association: Does everyone else love 2003’s “A.D.I.D.A.S” as much as we do?
For Fans Of: Goodie Mob/Twista/Ludacris + Redman, Clipse with Big Boi, ATL.
Sounds Like: Idol’s most notorious second place loser’s second LP is more club-friendly and house-flavored than before.
The Pack A.D. are built for the road
