reckless energy from their half-serious roots is every bit as vibrant and rambunctious on their latest album, Larceny & Old Lace
. But this time around we’re hearing a band that’s honed their trade and incorporated more stylistic variations. It’s also the band’s first experience in a proper studio; the album was recorded with Ed Rawls
at The Living Room in Atlanta, Georgia. The result is a record that feels like The Coathangers
we’ve always known and loved, but sounds like a band taking their trade more seriously.
Where their past recordings were a mash-up of garage rock’s rough and loose instrumentation and no-wave’s abrasive tonalities, Larceny & Old Lace
showcases a broader song-writing range. “Go Away
” taps into a ‘60s girl-group sound. “Call to Nothing
” employs the paint-peeling guitars, dance beats, and slightly ominous melodies of the early post-punk pioneers. “Well Alright
” is reminiscent of Rolling Stones’ bawdy R&B strut. “Tabbacco Road
” is perhaps the biggest leap for the band, completely eschewing their rabble-rousing strategy in favor of penning a pensive and somber ballad.
With this broadened artistic horizon, refinement of technique, and Ed Rawls’
production allowing every instrument to shine without detracting from the band’s natural grit, The Coathangers’
latest offering is easily their best record to date.
