Omni – “Skeleton Key”
Haven’t discussed the new OMNI here yet, but its good to see the Atlanta post-punks make good with a jump to Sub Pop for their latest, Networker. “Skeleton Key” is tightly wound, maybe a bit more sanded than the band sounded the last I left ‘em, but they’re still bending the strings through the wringer. They’re as tight as ever, though, stop-starting their way through the song like studio rats with a penchant for pop preening. The Robert Quine shadow looms large here – a foot in crunched punk and a foot in the sweater set. Oh, but don’t let the smooth taste fool ya, OMNI are still from the streets, and sometimes they find themselves waking up there. The video is simple and saturated and fits the band’s minimal design modes fairly well. Check the clip and line on up for the new platter when it lands in November.
