“the world isn’t ready for jcvz” (review)
Read Bowery Boogie’s review of Tyranny here. Excerpt below.
“Deceptive in the simplicity of its track titles (“Nintendo Blood,” “Xerox,” “Business Dog”), the band’s latest album Tyranny forces you to take a good hard look in the mirror and confront that blind eye you may turn towards, well, pretty much anything. That’s the power of this album. Politically or personally, it’s one of those rare records that challenges you in any area of your life or belief system.
Emotionally, it’s a flood light on truths that you’ve buried over and over, and demands that you shed your sheep mentality. Musically, it’s so beyond anything you’ve probably heard, that on first pass it’s overwhelming and you’ll want to write it off. Don’t. Because on second pass, the connection between the frenetic electronic keyboard bleeps, discordant chunking guitars, and the drum punching aligns so perfectly with the distortion of Casablancas’ spitfire vocals, everything you listen to after it will pale in comparison.”
