The ever indomitable Upset The Rhythm never misses the mark with post-punk and the latest on the roster is Berlin’s Clear History. “Presents” storms into the room on a double drum pound, lacerated vocals, and a garrote of guitar. There’s an element of mischief to the song, careening through the speakers with the velocity of an errant rock hurled through glass. Every word is relished, every squall of guitar on its toes and ready to push further into the soft underbelly of noise. Further obfuscating song the band offers up some backstory — “This song is about that time you kicked Santa in the nuts because he got you the exact thing you said you wanted. Santa deserves better but also so do you.” Clear History’s Bad Advice Good People is out November 5th.
