Hypoluxo

Even at their angriest, Hypoluxo make post-punk fun. Quite a few of the bands carrying the torch for angular indie rock project a harsh Cold War veneer borrowed from predecessors who helped shape the genre in the 1980s. That frigid apocalyptic vibe can yield great music, but at its bleakest it often has me wanting to find these serious artistes and sing them Sleater-Kinney’s “You’re No Rock ‘N’ Roll Fun.” So it’s nice that some performers of this ilk remember how much joie de vivre Devo used to funnel into their jittery grooves, how absurdly quirky Talking Heads let themselves be, and what wild guitar heroism Television shepherded into CBGB under the guise of punk.
