False-Heads – Without a Doubt/Where is Your Man?
aaamusic | On 12, Feb 2012
False-Heads shed some lo-fi light on 2012 with this single from their album Animation Draining Needles. Where is your man? is the musical equivalent of an elegant kick in the guts: a Sonic Youth-reminiscent song on friction and feigned indifference achieved with the gritty simplicity of raw guitars and a bass line of epic proportions. False-Heads’ hooks are unmasked and unadulterated, allowing the band’s confidence to shine through. Without a Doubt is again an amazing expression of lo-fi love, a Babies-era Pulp-like riff meets The Ramones-meets-Television Personalities moment which proves intimate and confrontational at the same time.
These two songs alone show a band with solid musical references and yet incredibly original, with their refreshingly unaffected attitude and a will to shake things up in their musical cosmos of reference.
