Following on from last year’s Faux Discx self-titled cassette-only E.P, Housewives join Blank Editions to deliver two tracks of brutalist post-punk.
Opener ‘New Dance’ is 1 minute and 33 seconds of sonic assault that brings to mind the nervous marriage of disco and no-wave pioneered by the New York scene of 135 Grand Street, while Side B’s ‘Time She Stopped’ flaunts a degenerative collapse of all things resembling structure as the volatile dismantling of the record pulses out to a close.
An absolutely astounding work. It sends my consciousness to another plane for the entirely of its run time. The 45 minutes that make up tracks 4, 5, and 6 are like nothing else I've ever heard. Levrikon
