dig­i­tal Garbage SUB POP 7/10 Grunge ti­tans take on the world

Thirty years af­ter lay­ing down the grubby, fuzzy foun­da­tions for what would be­come grunge, Mud­honey are still nois­ily ham­mer­ing away. The band have very much found their for­mula and stuck to it over the years, and al­bum 10 proves no dif­fer­ent. Mark Arm’s vo­cals and ink-black lyrics screech above the boom­ing bass, ob­nox­ious gui­tars and ever-pound­ing drums. Lyri­cally, the al­bum looks at the chaos of cur­rent times, ex­plor­ing mass shoot­ings on the riff-heavy “Please Mr Gun­man” and the om­nipo­tence of so­cial me­dia on the melodic and slide-gui­tar heavy “Kill Your­self Live”. It’s busi­ness as usual, but a wel­come re­turn none­the­less.
