Wu Lyf – L Y F

July 21, 2011

As with Tyler the Creator, Wu Lyf is a band that is going to always have you wondering how much of their hijinks is authentic acting-out and how much of it is calculated publicity stunt. Whatever the consensus, they’re causing a stir in England and now stateside with their banging, crashing and wailing on Go Tell the Fire to the Mountain. This is the first and probably best track off the album; an epic that feels like Suckers and old Modest Mouse injected with a shit-load of angry, parents’ basement-dwelling testosterone. It’s actually pretty great.
