Double Dagger: More
With an aggressive yet upbeat sound, Baltimore’s Double Dagger assaulted our ears with unhinged drive through two albums and a slew of EP releases since the band’s formation in 2002. A sound labeled ‘post-punk’ could mean almost anything, so rather than obsessing over the fashionability of the genre, listen to More with an open mind. You’re bound to see beauty between the drums and the reverberating basslines. Simply constructed and intelligently delivered, the trio’s newest album conveys what could only have been concieved in a trashed B-more warehouse packed with thrashing scenesters.
