Iceage 

You’re Nothing (Matador)

iceage-review.jpg
If punk is dead, these 20-somethings didn’t get the message. Hailing from Copenhagen, Denmark, left-leaning punks Iceage have taken the urgency of early Black Flag and combined it with the book-smart aggression of fellow Scandinavian-revolutionaries Refused to create an album that’s equal parts unabashed-desolation and youthful-exuberance. On the aptly titled You’re Nothing, Iceage unleashes a caustic storm of single coil riffs and military precision showcasing the band’s monastic-levels of dedication to their art. Opening with the slow-burning “Ecstasy,” the svelte quartet cements lead single “Coalition” as this generation’s “Nervous Breakdown.” Not since Joy Division has a band sounded so authentically abrasive.
