Album Review: All Blood's The Kids Have No Taste

The Kids Have No Taste
(self-released)

Calculated in its use of lo-fi recording techniques, the first release from the full-band All Blood expands on the work that Jonathan Brokaw has been recording as a solo project for the past few years. The quartet mines a sonic territory familiar to fans of Goner or Slovenly Recordings — angular, but with a jangly shimmy that allows for dancing even as it encourages you to wreck the room.

The various interstitial bits of studio banter (“Mark E. Smith can suck my crotch”) give the album an element of fun. The Kids Have No Taste is harmonious, despite its attempts to convince you otherwise. Even the weird and off-kilter “Hippie Drug” is catchy, and the dance-floor grinder “Sweet Ass Dank” that closes out the record soothes all the way into its inevitable disintegration.
