Leave Home by The Men
Released: May 2011
Label: Sacred Bones Records
This Brooklyn post-hardcore crew's breakout album spends its first three minutes gently warming up, and the other 40 or so joyfully pummeling you with thrillingly overdriven noise-rock ardor, all feral drums and lethally buzzing amps, ferocious but charming, like a jet engine learning to feel. "L.A.D.O.C.H." is a brutal scream-and-clatter horror show in the grand Jesus Lizard tradition; the (slightly) gentler whiplash anthemia of bizarrely titled tracks like "( )" and "Sh*ttin' With the Shah" evokes decades of macho-sensitive greatness, from Sonic Youth to MC5. Kick out the jams, uh, dude.
