Produced by Fugazi’s Guy Picciotto, Record of the Week is Downtown Boys Cost Of Living. It's tense, kinda joyous and full of thump. The position of Providence, RI’s Downtown Boys has been clear since they started storming through basements and DIY spaces with their radically-minded rock music: they are here to topple the white-cis-het hegemony and draft a new history.
The call and response vocals are superb and this LP feels like a perfect capture of their raucous live shows.
