My Disco’s Sustained Inferno
Someone was using their entire brain when they came up with the brilliant goddamn idea to stick Australia’s My Disco on a Melbourne (My Disco’s hometown) date with Wire in early January. Wire has always been at their best when they are at their brittle, barren least and My Disco is, if anything, a study in the minimalistic ethic.
The end result is music that is somehow simultaneously relaxing AND agitating. Great stuff to listen to while crushing a parking lot full of Volvos with a dump truck — if you time the points of impact just right.
