Gang of Four: Content (2011)


(Yep Roc)

RECOMMENDED

Read my review at Metro Times.

Two post-punk titans issued albums in the first few weeks of 2011. Wire has been surprisingly prolific in the last decade, but Gang of Four's return was a bit of a shock. Both albums are strong, but for what it's worth, it's the Four's that feels most vital and full of youth -- and not just because their sound has been more openly appropriated into the mainstream by a younger generation. But Wire's songs are better, so it's kind of a wash. Anyway, both releases are worth your time.
