Album Review

In and out in just under 16 minutes — and nearly a third of that is devoted to a pair of extended remixes of two of the album's strongest songs — Rad Warehouses Bad Neighborhoods is minimalist, punky new wave revivalism cut to the bone. Like Suicide with slightly better equipment and a more sure sense of pitch, or the Go! Team in a much crankier mood, this Australian duo are all about the creation of unnerving atmospheres: even the most pop-oriented tunes here, like the perky cheer leading chant "Distressed by Late Night Television," have an unsettling, needly edge.

Perhaps not for the faint of heart, there's a smart sense of structure underpinning these songs that at first seems almost random and improvised. [Counter's 2009 edition featured 11 bonus tracks and alternate album art.]
