Washington-based bashers Milk Music have a full-length coming on April 2 — a grunge-addled alt-punk slab of emotive gnarl called Cruise Your Illusion en route via Fat Possum Records. A month ago we heard the aptly titled "I've Got a Wild Feeling," in itself a pedal-pushing whirlwind of whine and grind, and before that we damaged our necks freaking out to the far scruffier "Violence Now." But now we've got a new one to devour and it's only putting our vertebrae at further risk. "Cruising With God" is a top-down hair-whipper of the highest and holiest order — reason to saw the top off yer Civic and drive in circles to the shrill sound of guitars being gorgeously abused. Just do it:
