PRE-ORDER: Total Control - Laughing At The System
It's no secret that Total Control is my favorite contemporary band. On "Laughing At The System," them boys from down under are up to their old confounding tricks again. These tracks vacillate between gentle synth ditties to heavier, angular postpunk more reminiscent of what made Total Control a household name in underground circles. The band's trademark biting humor makes a welcome return, but what the fuck do you expect from a record called "Laughing At The System?" A completely essential release of 2017, in my honest opinion.
