shame - Drunk Tank Pink
77
VIDEO REVIEW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vVQ-21xQmfs

In my recent review of the latest Viagra Boys release, I said I was getting really tired of all this artsy, noisy, somewhat generic post punk coming out of Europe in the past few years. Shame's new album Drunk Tank Pink has made me reconsider that.

Although you won't find anything particularly groundbreaking here, Shame's commitment to dynamic songwriting creates an album full of interesting rhythms, clever crescendos, and jarring riffs reminiscent of peak Women. It especially hits hard when executed at its best, like in Snow Day and Station Wagon.

I still have some reservations about this release. Some of the songs feel really straightforward and without much to offer like Alphabet, and there are a few songwriting moments here that feel a bit forced. I'm still not the hugest fan of this latest trend in rock music, but Shame's Drunk Tank Pink is undoubtedly one of the more creative efforts to come out of the recent wave of post punk.
