Nik Havert This EP is fantastic. Post-punk is alive and well.

Here's my full review. www.7thlevelmusic.com?p=552 Favorite track: Milk.

Art Fin I like this angular, dissonant and shouty art-punk/no-wave that sounds more like it is from 1980 than 2016. Oddly, this seems to be in mono rather than stereo. Wall might appeal to fans of the bands Shopping and Ethical Debating Society. Favorite track: Cuban Cigars.

jes skolnik Sharp, funny post-punk that evokes the best of the '80s Boston scene (Mission of Burma, Moving Targets), the clangor of The Fall, the alien jerk of Pylon, and any (fantastic) bind Christina Billotte's ever been. This is everything I've ever liked all in one, a perfect knife baked into a honey cake.

about

With each sonic movement on the introductory self-titled EP from New York’s WALL there's a commitment to defend a punctuated duality between curiosity and triumph. After all, what’s a band worth but its message? A certain self-awareness of the very question is at the heart of the WALL apparatus and listening along as they discover themselves throughout this EP is invigorating and scary. Tone and rhythm whirl together, like an emergency exit door choreographed to swing flawlessly in time to its damned and chaotic Pavlovian alarm bell. From the first rigid and cautious seconds of their EP, WALL unleashes an uncanny self-awareness that methodically slips pages ripped from demented No Wave legacies through a shredder of their own design. Their spirit is exceptional and candid; generous heaps of raw energy and inspired moments of tension demand repeat rotations on your turntable. With this debutante artifact, WALL have invited the world to witness the birth of a toxic-new tempestuous bloodwave of post-punk, exactly the transfusion the scene needs to stay alive.
