Blacklisters Adult on LP
With a little bit of the old ultraviolence and moloko plus plus plus comes Leeds' original busters and library-farters Blacklisters, with their sophomore album Adult. 10 tracks of post-modern, post-hipster, post-society noise rock that sizzles and crumbles all up in your listening device and baller-buds that feels just oh-so right whilst riding the bus to work in the morning staring at the faces around you with a mix of apathy, disdain and outright hatred.
A ferocious mix of bangin', angular noise rock and reckless, dick-swinging punk with one foot and a pinky in Drive Like Jehu, Jesus Lizard and old Wire records, Adult is sure to be your new, go-to slab of tails for self-flagellation and fucking up society from the inside. Adult was recorded at Suburban Home Studios in Leeds with producer Matt Johnson, aka MJ of Hookworms. The album is a clear progression for the band, and demonstrates a growing confidence in their song writing and performance, from the abstract art-noise to the unrelenting, brutally minimalist riffs that first put them on the radar.
"Buried beneath the noise and feedback is a tightly coiled sense of dynamics, punctuated by angular shards of guitar...splendidly fucked up." – Kerrang!
