We'll Go MacheteStrong Drunk Hands (Cedar Fever)
With Strong Drunk Hands, We'll Go Machete furiously delivers on the promise of its 2009 EP. The Austin quartet fuses the calculated assault of Chicago noise-rock with the economical intensity of DC post-punk in a manner not seen in Texas perhaps since At the Drive-In. There's not a runt in the 10-track litter, but "Kids in Front" and "Number 13," in particular, go straight for the throat.
