Pungent Indie Rock

Snowden -- Anti-Anti (5.3mb mp3 from the band's label page)
While not as interesting as Kill the Power on their earlier EP (which sadly they've taken down from their site), this is still an excellent tune. The crisp drums, sing-songy "oh-oh-oh-oh"s and jangly guitars in the intro make you wonder if it's going to be fluffy pop, but then the slightly distorted bass hints at more intensity to come.

The unique vocal style uses somewhat monotonous melodies (oxymoron?) that end up sounding more pleasing than they should be. After a disjointed break halfway through, the last minute really gets rolling with more distortion and a sort of chanted, repeated, and mostly unintelligible chorus -- nice, focused noise.
