You're Nothing (Matador)

This Danish quartet writes toothy, blackened, and thoroughly foreign two-minute punk songs that escape classification in any niche. Matador signed them, international tours roll regularly, and a number of stoic, antagonistic interviews have been written in their honor. Sophomore effort You're Nothing remains a people's album nonetheless. More than any rainy, apocalyptic hardcore, Iceage owns the craft of rampaging, chugga-chugga guitar hooks. Chain-breaking, neck-snapping lead single "Ecstasy" has its name for a reason. We all want to feel violent and invincible sometimes. For a band with so many fascinating implications, You're Nothing's catchiness shouldn't be overlooked. (Thu., 8:20pm, 1100 Warehouse)
