DC Snipers- Missile Sunset CD $10.00 $3.00

Well armed with an arsenal of brand new material the DC Snipers hit Electric Frog Recordings in August of 2005 to record the absolutely monsterous ‘Missile Sunset’. 11 solid hits (if that can even apply in this case) that exemplifies the DC Snipers sound perfectly. From the somber rhythmic opening chords of ‘Note To Self’, the song transcends into an anger fueled, ear bludgeoning crecendo before meandering back into mellowness. And there’s just something cool that despite this chaotic rollercoaster, the song is stylistically offset with the atonal, harmonised chorus of ‘Note To Self, KILL YOUR SELF!’ Arty...ya kind of. But more in a ‘ya you didn’t think of it and we did, fuck you’ kinda way. With song titles like ‘Die (They All Want Me To), ‘Electric Chair From Saigon’ and ‘All Humans Are Garbage’ each DC Snipers song blends introspective, detatched themes with pretty catchy, and at times melodic, music that sounds like it’s 3 different songs patched together into one loosely defined ‘idea’. And an ingenious idea at that! The DC Snipers bring something different to the table with each of the 11 tracks on this album; and it’s hard to do that and actually end up with a record that’s good! But the Snipers have proven it’s not impossible. Taking cues from other musical pioneers like the Screamers, Gang of Four, Urinals and the Electric Eels; the DC Snipers forge into their own fragmented, audience-less sector and begin to build a following based on songs that are undeniably catchy without sticking to a musical ‘script’. The most difficult part of being in a proto/art punk/whatever band like this: is to do something completely inovative and different, yet still leaving the listener with something loosely ill defined to grasp onto. And the DC Snipers completely nail that. Check it out or don’t....but I’m sure ‘Missile Sunset’ will appeal to a select group of people that are willing to follow these trail blazers into their own finely crafted musical realm! For fans of: Human Eye, Tokyo Electron, Electric Eels, Gang of Four, Geisha Girls, AluminumKnotEye, Kill The Hippies, Black Lips, Crime, Matachine, Chrome, Flipper, Feelers, Screamers, Monitors, Red Red Red, Urinals, Tunnel Of Love, Tractor Sex Fatality etc.
