Hear Death From Above 1979’s Sleazy Punk Crusher ‘Government Trash’

Death From Above 1979 Government Trash Stream

Doomy duo Death From Above 1979 are set to return with The Physical World, their first album since 2004’s You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine, next month. The nearly 10-year wait for the Toronto band’s sophomore album has gotten a little easier today with the release of the second single from that set, “Government Trash.” At a show last week at Los Angeles’ Troubadour, they handed out CD-rs of the track and it trickled onto the Internet over the weekend.

Like “Trainwreck 1979,” this one kicks off with some downcast dance-rock, but from there things get a little unhinged. Sleazy, distorted basslines collide with rattling lo-fi drum beats while the duo unleashes some throat-scorching vocalizations. Sebastian Grainger and Jesse Keeler are definitely back, even if they’ve sort of made it seem like they don’t want to be. Listen in here:
