Iceage "New Brigade" LP


"New Brigade "is Iceage's debut album, 26 minutes of anthemic stress and tension undiluted by worldly wisdom or amassed experience, its members are teenagers, presently ranging from 16 through 18 years of age. "New Brigade" displays a confidence that substitutes worldly experience for the thrills of discovery, of knowing that it is possible to forge your own path in light of adults, the establishment and prevailing wisdom telling you to do otherwise. Iceage mixes '77 punk, '79 post-punk, goth and hardcore as if they invented it, and does such an excellent job of blending these tropes with the pent-up energy and frustration of the just-post-pubescent years of young men's lives, that they might as well have.
