iTunes Editors’ Notes

Jokingly referring to their sound as “graphicdesignercore” in the early days, Baltimore trio Double Dagger seem to now be accepting their place as simply a damn good punk band, a younger cousin to nearby D.C.’s early scene (Fugazi, Minor Threat). Yes, vocalist Nolen Strals (a graphic artist) sounds a bit like Ian McKaye, with a direct, insistent yelp that is utterly captivating, but his chemistry with bassist Bruce Willen (also a designer) and drummer Denny Bowen stirs up a fresh, energetic brew that is stunningly powerful without a guitar. The sound is stripped and clean, yet the edges around the bass lines — double-tracked, manipulated — feel gritty and worn and dangerous, the percussive assaults and Strals’ indignant yowling pummel any smooth spots into a pulp; dissonance and melody go hand in hand. Once you feel the visceral gut punch of  “Vivre sans temps mort,” “No Allies,” or “The Lie/the Truth,” you’ll wonder what took so long for a Dischord/D.C. revival scene to start up: everything old is new again, and that’s something to celebrate when you’re talking about Double Dagger.

Considering that Willen and Strals worked day jobs in an art firm called Post Typography, it wasn't a big surprise that they decided to name the new group after a typographic symbol....
