WORLD, THE- Managerial Material 7"
Oakland, California's The World offer the only glimmers of hope in a city rapidly transforming into a wasteland of artisanal toast. Their debut 7" is all double sax attack, dub guitar tremolo, and spare and sturdy drums, anchored by the gravitational pull of Amber's propulsive bass. Members have done time in Andy Human & the Reptoids, Pang, and Penny Machine; devotees of all those will find much to like here. The World's a post-punk band, sure, but they're also a dance group and a wild and revolutionary art collective.
