Nü Sensae Nü Sensae
Vancouver two-piece Nu Sensae get along well with their peers in the burgeoning weird punk movement, all rusty bass riffs and scrambling drums meeting frantic, panted vocals. Aptly calling their music "voodoo punk," the band use their sinister bass lines and lo-fi production to find a murky middle ground between noise punk and a hiss-y grunge mixtape. On their debut album, a one-sided twelve-inch record, the duo serve up the messiest fuzz around, suggesting what must be a badass live show while demonstrating their abilities as songwriters and noise-mongers on tape. Adding in the odd movie sample paces the record well but other than that it's one speed throughout. But that's a good thing, because if anyone's going to hit you over the head with menacing, all-out post-punk be thankful it's these Vancouver kids. Get this record before it blows up.
