New Music of the Day – CXXXVII : Divide and Conquer – Idles

15107256_1227819820573948_5104068565954960538_nFor those who say that there isn’t any politically charged, challenging music happening any more…I give you Idles. Rhythmic punk shot through with a dose of Sleaford-esque brutality and putting social and political discussion back on the table, in this case a minimalist sound bite to get people talking about the demise of The NHS.

It has often been said that Idles only make sense in the live environment and with a national tour taking the band through March and into April, now is the perfect time to be part of a musical movement that will hopefully over turn the bland and the shallow and assault the head, heart and senses through a new wave of very challenging music.

The album Brutalism is out on 10th March.
