Stream: Wage Theft ‘Rituals’ (Show Tonight)
For their first pysical release, local noise-punk duo Wage Theft crammed six high energy tracks onto a limited edition CS. The first five tracks are two minute sonic freakouts of spazzy jazz-punk, an unrelenting barrage of angular guitars and pummeling percussion. The final song, “Misanthropy,” follows that same tract, but then ventures into a backwards looped noise tunnel that wobbles forward into a vacuum of dissonance. It is over in less than 20 minutes, and its infectious energy and white-knuckled intensity will have you circling back to the start. Stream the album below and grab on of the 48 copies made from the band via the same link.
See the band tonight at the Kitty Cat Klub in Minneapolis.
