One of 2013's biggest stories is this all-female English four-piece, who combine the coveted austerity of The xx with a different tack entirely: copper-wire post-punk. Fans of Bloc Party's debut will love Gemma Thompson's chugging yet reverberating guitar textures. Meanwhile, Ayse Hassan might be the most memorable bassist in recent memory; her nasty angles on the prime manifesto "Shut Up" are unlike anyone else in rock. Gang of Four's Sara Lee would be proud. "No Face" is Goo-y enough to make Sonic Youth reunite. This is sour, sour music, but it's full of energy and fresh slants.
