If Sassy was still around, Iceage would be a shoo-in for Cute Band Alert. Four handsome teenage punks from Denmark that exude sexy angst and craft songs with a sense of urgency and despair—perfect fodder to dampen panties. But these boys are more than just heartthrob material, New Brigade is packed with twelve songs that blend elements of post-punk’s angular guitar with hardcore’s pounding brevity. It’s a jagged affair that rallies in us-against-them tinged anthemic cries, adding a post-apocalyptic feel to an already tense mood. New Brigade is twenty-two minutes of impassioned, anxious and tightly wound virility that you won’t forget. [What’s Your Rupture]
