Sex Scheme - 7" (2014)
Sex Scheme's new EP is a noisy, crusty, and defiant crunch of clanging guitars, throbbing bass, stomped-out drums, and vocals that let you know without a doubt that the singer's sneering right at you. The rough and tumble style owes more than a little influence to the no-wave of New York (since they're situated in Brooklyn, this makes a lot of sense), and the EP sounds like it was rolled along one of their sidewalks for its gravel-and-cigarette-butts coating of sound. The best part is, they succeed in making their history-lesson take on no-wave sound entirely organic, with a good sense of their own personality coming through the tarred-up cracks. If you like your music sounding like it's been spending the better part of the week kicking through the streets, 7” will give you a deep (though quick) scratching of that itch. You can grab a copy on vinyl from their BandCamp, but be quick about it, as they probably won't be available for long.
