The International Noise Conspiracy – Bigger Cages, Longer Chains Ep

Even if you’re sick of the current wave of neo-garage rock currently flowing like dirty water out of Sweden, give the INC a try. Driven by iconoclastic political ideals, they have more on their lyrical agenda than their party-minded brethren. They don’t stop the clock with the release of Raw Power, either, incorporating the influence of quirky late-’70s UK art-punks like Wire and the Swell Maps into their rave-ups, consequently arriving at both a broader sonic landscape and more satisfying mindset.
