The Icarus Line, 'Black Lives at the Golden Coast'

6
Black Lives at the Golden Coast
Critical Mass
Label: Dim Mak

by Mikael Wood

These Los Angeles noise-punk brats built their rep by electrifying (and infuriating) audiences at their self-consciously chaotic shows, the wildest of which got the group banned from venues in Austin and Hollywood. But disorder has it limits: Here, the Icarus Line (minus guitarist Aaron North, who joined Nine Inch Nails in 2005) soften their post-Stooges blurt with gooey neo-shoegaze guitars that reveal an unexpected melodic streak. A few tunes -- like "Fshn Fvr," which sounds like something from the Lost in Translation soundtrack -- are even kinda pretty.
