PUNK-ROCK. Five years after their sudden and striking appearance on the New York punk scene MURDERER have re-emerged with their long-awaited full-length LP. Rather than diluting the original formula, heightens its intensity in an unexpected but wholly natural way. Rolling, infectious WIRE-like hooks are set inside the dreary atmosphere of the WIPERS, as gang vocals issue simple, hard-headed proclamations about life in the streets and the shadows. Hints of modern soul keyboard and reverb-drenched, faraway guitar leads texture the album. A modern heir not only to the best introspective punk bands but to the street corner rhythm-and-blues groups assembling in the decades before them.
