Pop. 1280 “Lights Out” from Imps of Perversion (2013)
A new track from Brooklyn’s Pop. 1280, following in the same vein as last year’s excellent The Horror, one of 2012’s great unheralded triumphs. It was a soundtrack suitable for blaring out of speakers in Kowloon Walled City, maddening buzzing and pounding while people work feverishly to manufacture plastic products and gutting cattle in a cramped urban environment. Above the din is Chris Bug, a powerful voice that both encourages and condemns the whole scene. It’s Bug’s commanding presence that sets Pop. 1280 apart from noisy bands that fetishize serial killers or take Brainbombs literally; no gory imagery, but a commanding presence that you obey against your better judgement. All of this is intact on the new track, except the band sounds hungry for blood this time out, the sound of pent-up disgust being spewed forth. It’s an aggressive and tantalizing teaser for an album that I’m highly anticipating. It’s sure to be a sorely-needed shot in the arm come August 6.
