CL RECOMMENDS
CL Critic Matthew Warhol Recommends: Punk and politics have always gone hand in hand, but rarely has it sounded this jovial. Special Interest perfect combine the aggression and activism of punk and the free-spirited, fun, and glittery sounds of disco and dance pop. However, the latter never dilutes the former. These aren’t faux revolutionaries trying to make leftism palatable for a wider audience. In fact, they vehemently criticize that kind of Neo-liberalism. “Liberal erasure of militant uprising is a tool of corporate interest and a failure of imagination.” A mosh pit never has never been this fun. — MW
