Straight up – ALL HITS Men And Their Work is the best Post Punk debut of the past decade! Their music gives me chills the same way as when I first heard Rudimentary Peni’s Death Church. The lyrics on this record are spot on, with lines like, “Keeping quiet for Social Clout/That’s not what I’m about/Come on let’s kick him OUT!/When are you going to kick him OUT!” – I think about kicking predatory males out of the Punk scene or speaking up against racism in the Black Metal and Death Metal scenes. Fucking refreshing.
Another thing that has me hooked on ALL HITS is the vocal delivery that this band lays down, from soulful clean singing that reminds me of Mia Zapata, to all-out angst! Don’t even get me started on the songwriting, because every song is an urgent, catchy anthem but at the same time totally angular. I can’t express how important this record is to the culture right now – it’s empowering me through the dark days we’re living through. I want to say thank you to the band ALL HITS for creating music that truly matters, and that has so much power it jumps out of the speakers. Respect due to Iron Lung Records for releasing this sonic gem on June 26th – you can pre-order it HERE! We’re streaming ALL HITS Men And Their Work in full below and are honored to be doing so!
