After releasing one of the most under appreciated releases of last year, their debut No Future, there was a much too long quiet period from Wax Idols. Thankfully, Heather Fedewa/Fortune and co. have returned, and with "Schadenfreude" (German for masochism), the band step away from their UK '77 sound and into American post-punk influence, fusing the new song with tons of wonderful Wipers influence. The result is the evilest sounding hook filled song you will probably ever hear, darker and angrier than what the band has ever done before, but still just as additively punky that the wax won't be leaving anyone's turntable anytime soon.
The Creative Intersection is an Austin based music blog, dedicated to the music I discover and love. Feel free to email me about bands I should cover and your band's mp3 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also feel free to use the same email to contact me about sending me your CD, vinyl, cassette, 8-Track, or zine for review. Long live the physical format!
I post mp3s for the sole reason of promoting the bands they are used for. I don't really like mp3s and if you like what you hear, buy their albums. Despite what Steve Albini says, it does help the band. Any band/label who doesn't want thier mp3 to be posted can contact me at email@example.com
