Members Dave W. and Ego Sensation have brazenly produced an industrially-charged record that pulsates unlike anything they’ve released before.
Mixed by Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Brian Eno, Afrika Bambaataa), the album was influenced by dance hall, drug den and bar, the Mudd Club - New York’s legendary haunt in the late 1970’s. Following similar techniques to those propagated by William S. Burroughs (a regular at Mudd Club), ‘Stop Mute Defeat’ sees White Hills break free from the guitar-driven structure of their earlier releases and create sounds that call to mind ‘Xtrmntr’-era Primal Scream or Cabaret Voltaire. Despite the band’s newfound approach, their criticisms of rampant consumerism and the proliferation of post-truth mythology are at their most scathing.10.99Thrill Jockey20172019Rock & Psych & Garage2018-03-21
