NO MEN – Dear God, Bring the Doom – Dark, smoky, gothic post-punk and bright, danceable, energetic punk rock all at the same time. They have a similar output to MX-80 SOUND or the full generational spectrum of KILLING JOKE: bright gain-y bass that carries a lot of the melody and guitar, spilling into the crest of the energy, all riled up underneath calm and dark vocals, until the whole thing takes off when she starts shouting. It’s a tape that’ll get you excited about your death wish and proud of your darkness. (MD) (10-song cassette, lyrics not included, no-men.bandcamp.com)
