Gorilla Angreb, "Bedre Tider"
Springy Danish punks recall better times. The "punchy" production here sanitizes inchoate rockabilly leanings, and the clarion chorus, which each glorious time still feels clipped, rings true, unmuddied. Bizarre harmonic schemes shroud the thing in a slasher-film aesthetic, but these accoutrements can't allay the X worship that lies at the core. They're desperate: get used to it.
