Album Review

Apogee Sound Club – “Belligerent” – [Fullyintercoastal Records]

abacus   7/25/2012   7-inch, A Library

Angry, disjointed scrap rock with a strong political focus from this SF trio. While this has a distinct punk sound, they reject this term, opting for a more open ended, anti-authoritarian ideology of underground sonic energy. Side A contains the hits, with muddy guitar-bass interplay that is persistently gritty without losing its groove assisted by some consistently dazzling fill-work by drums. The second track is a rollicking instrumental with guitar and drums locked-on and an almost bluesy sound amidst the mania. The B side starts with another kicker that throws some tweaked surf swells in between verses and ends with a slowed-down story time anthem about getting your ass kicked by friendly neighborhood peace officers. Check out the agit-prop included along with the sing-along comic book. Awesome debut release from these rising stars of the SF underground!
