Q and Not U - No Kill No Beep Beep

Q and Not U, one of Dischord's current bands, is probably one of the most innovative and exciting acts in music today. Here is something truly original and fresh, intense and invigorating. Q could be considered a punk band, but their sound is definitely not confined to any style. They bring punk intensity, but there are also melodic vocals, danceable rhythms, jittery guitar parts... it just never gets boring.

No Kill No Beep Beep happens to be the band's debut album. With two interacting guitars, incredibly low, grooving bass, and superb drumming, it is quite an impressive album indeed. Most of the songs are highly accessible and extremely addicting, like my personal favorite, "Hooray for Humans." The entire album is energetic and rocking, except a somewhat soothing mid-album break, "Kiss Distinctly American," which is good in its own right. With all the songs being consistantly good, this record is one of the best indie recordings I've heard in a long time. Give it a chance and you'll probably be hooked.
