Hot on the heels of their Hi-Tech Boom LP, space rockers POW! deliver more of the same: sneering vocals, wriggling keyboard lines and stinging fuzz guitars. A-side "One Eyed Scorpion" writhes and squirms before transforming into a full-on synth meltdown, all while being propelled by singer Byron Blum's agitated Eno-isms. The songs on the flip burn with proto-punk inspired misanthropy, complete with the primordial rhythms that SIMPLY SAUCER and NERVOUS GENDER once supplied. Like their Castle Face debut, the tracks here show a band seething over the state of their city. Lucky for us, they're still channeling that anger into enduring punk anthems.
