A stunning collection of sounds from this Montreal outfit, album blanc is absolute perfection in the increasingly polluted sea of retro sounding dark punk. A vibe that's somewhere between raw garage and angular energetic post punk fronted by a screaming all encompassing guitar. The music is filthy, but it sinks into you like the good bands do...and NO.NEGATIVE are very very good at getting under your skin. Some people like lazy musical comparisons, so here you go: PERE UBU, DASHER, STOOGES, DKs, BIRTHDAY PARTY. This banger came to me from a place far outside of my aural comfort zone, and won me over instantly. Prepare yourself.
