cost of living (2017/SUB POP)

POST/INDIE-PUNK. Since DOWNTOWN BOYS started storming through basements and d.i.y. spaces with their radically-minded rock music: they are here to topple the white-cis-het hegemony and draft a new history. DOWNTOWN BOYS began by combining revolutionary ideals with boundless energy and contagious, inclusive fun, and their resolve has only strengthened as their sound and audience have grown. "cost of living" is their 3rd full-length, following a self-released 2012 debut and 2015's "full communism" on Don Giovanni Records. The album rides the feel-good power that drove so many tunes by THE CLASH and WIRE as it calls out the idea that a wall could ever succeed in snuffing the humanity and spirit of those it's designed to crush.
