CRITIC REVIEWS

No Ripcord

New Brigade earns a brand spanking title because it’s entirely unprejudiced, devoid of the qualms that taint talented musicians when they’ve been exposed to too much information.

Pitchfork

While they still have room to grow as songwriters, the energy in every atom of New Brigade's charred, sub-25-minute rush is seductive.

Beats Per Minute

New Brigade is over in about 23 minutes, and each second feels well worth your time.

Drowned in Sound

It’s all tension and release, with barely a second wasted to gasp for air amidst the squall of a band on invigorating form.

It's clear that there's talent here that has the potential to be startlingly good, if they stay the course.

A short and raw post punk record. High energy and extremely noisy, worth a listen.

Best Track: You're Blessed
Worst Track: Rotten Heights

Really great energy on this album. My only complaint is that this album is more of a sampler than a full meal. They present these really interesting ideas and take them away from you very quickly. Some very interesting instrumentation, sometimes even industrial sounding. Just wish there was more.
