NOTH­ING GIVES LEISURE & DISTRICT, OUT 2 DE­CEM­BER Noise-punk trio emerge with all guns blaz­ing on promis­ing de­but.

Part of a sub­ter­ranean Bri­tish DIY punk scene (see also God Damn, De­mob Happy and Love Buz­zard), Not­ting­ham trio Slowcoaches are un­con­strained by com­mer­cial con­sid­er­a­tions. As a re­sult, their de­but al­bum – recorded in just two days at “the cheap­est place in Lon­don” – is a free­wheel­ing blast through mil­len­nial anx­i­ety and frustration. The sub­ject mat­ter might be bleak – de­mean­ing jobs, al­co­holic es­capism and men­tal break­downs – but the mu­sic ex­udes a fu­ri­ous en­ergy through­out. The song­writ­ing is crisp, too, and on tracks such as the de­ment­edly melodic We’re So Heavy and Raw Deal­ings the band sug­gest they might yet have the abil­ity to es­cape the scene they’re cur­rently locked in.
