Chicago punk band Negative Scanner return to the fray with their second LP, the cheekily titled Nose Picker. Once again recorded by the band themselves in their Chicago practice space, it opens with a question; "Is there anybody there?", which acts as both a legitimate query as well as a rallying cry. Negative Scanner make it clear that they want your attention, as opening tune "T.V."s stutter step guitar riff leans into a lean and mean, 4-on-the-floor churn. The rest of the album follows suit, either with raging punk snarl ("History Lesson," "First Blood," "Let it Die"), or angular, emotive jagged guitar riffage ("A Cross," "10 Million Kids," "The Only One"), punctuated by vocalist/guitarist Rebecca Valeriano Flores' voice, teetering between a full throated roar and a plaintive monotone. Her lyrics are insular, spitting accusatory and inquisitory barbs inward, talking to anyone who'll listen. Despite the darkness on the surface, Nose Picker has an unmistakable air of whimsy, and a sense of humor, punctuated by the very literal cover, and by the sound of a toilet flushing at the album's closing.
