Sneaks, “Inside Edition”

What a great time to be alive! Incredible diversity of  sounds, and deep reworkings of previous styles, birthing new reactive forms. Sneaks released an outstanding debut, first on DC label Sister Polygon, then redistributed through famous Merge Records, and by French Paris boutique label, Danger Records.

Beat-machine minimal post-punk, with soft-spoken rap poetics. Political, obliquely. Anti-pop to be sure, but careful to preserve jubilation. The question is…Does it work as a single? Probably not, but it evokes fascination and anticipation for full-length. Avant-garde beware!

Doug Musorock Radio

Recent releases and classic reissues in rock/punk/garage/psych and sometimes weird noise. Middleground between Sangue Electrico and dynamite haemorrhage. Musorock also wrote the most accurate Nots review ever:

Yelped vocals, sharp turns on guitar, pummeling no-nonsense drumming and warehouse recording dynamics give both of these singles (an earlier four-song EP and a two-track follow-up) a rough, newly-awaken “Bride of Frankenstein” sort of feel to them, hissing and filled with distrust for any way but its own.

“Filled with distrust for any way but its own…..” Words to live by.
