New Orleans' biggest rap export puts his contemporaries in the shade on inspired new mixtape
Milk Music - 'Violence Now'
Proof that Milk Music have something special
Here: it’s about the way everything skids to a halt every 30 seconds – save for the ear-piercing, bruised squall of rank feedback. There: it’s about the way they’re catapulted back into spittlepunk revolver-action by singer Alex Coxen’s Strummer-esque scream of “VIOLENCE!” – not once but EIGHT times during its far-too-short two minutes and 15 seconds. Everywhere: it’s because Milk Music are a proper, proper garage band, and perhaps the only one that still truly dares to exist in 2012. Repeat, repeat, repeat and be damned.
