Polish Nails – Musical Youth

Atlanta based band Polish Nails return to Brutal New York of the early 1980’s with its dilapitated infrastructure, crumbling highways, streets littered with trash, deathzones where it was easier to buy crack than cigarettes and the World Trade Center standing tall and totalitarian above the soot-covered concrete canyons. I’m talking about no wave here obviously, and the screeching, lo-fi sound of the bands is an obvious homage to the sound of DNA or Mars. NYC may be all gentrified and glassy now, but the bleak, rusty sound of no wave lives on and spreads across the world. Recommended!
