The Death Set, 'Worldwide' (Counter)

Worldwide
Critical Mass
Label: Counter

by Spencer Kornhaber

Like seemingly everyone emerging from Baltimore's pogo-stick-and-glow-stick indie music scene, Australian natives the Death Set rock out à la Looney Tunes -- maniacal, colorful, and giddy. They're punks with lo-fi drum machines and keyboards, crafting spastic sing-alongs that channel the Blood Brothers and rarely top two minutes. When the duo hit on a catchy melody ("Negative Thinking," "Peak Oil"), they're unstoppable, but that's not quite enough to keep their sound from feeling repetitive by the end of this 26-minute debut.
