Dirty finds Sonic Youth revisiting the territory the band mapped out on Sister -- merging the propulsive structures of rock (both punk and otherwise) with the gorgeous chaos of their approach to the electric guitar -- and it shows how much better they'd gotten at it in the past five years, from the curiously beautiful Wish Fulfillment and Theresa's Sound World to the brutal Drunken Butterfly and Purr. Dirty was also Sonic Youth's most overtly political album, railing against the abuses of the Reagan/Bush era on Youth Against Fascism, Swimsuit Issue, and Chapel Hill, a surprising move from a band so often in love with cryptic irony.

New album. New sound. On Acrobats London's Peggy Sue has put down the acoustic guitars, this time opting instead for buzzing guitars and crackling amps. Recorded with producer of the moment John Parish --known for his extensive work with PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse and EELS -- Acrobats keeps the propulsive energy of their former work, but this time the sonics back up the mood. Songwriters Rosa and Katy, and drummer Olly called upon early influences like Sonic Youth and The Breeders when conceiving Acrobats which, coupled with recently acquired electric guitars and a new practice space, released the ferocity that had always been swimming just beneath the surface of the band's music. Parish successfully harnesses this newly minted electricity, resulting in the fulfillment of several albums and EP's worth of musical innuendo. Acrobats is certainly still Peggy Sue, but this time we see that behind the wry smile lies a mouthful of sharp, dirty teeth.

Sweden's Makthaverskan layer tenets of noise, jangle and dream pop on a foundation of rambling, garage-punk energy. Distorted, uptempo riffs ebb and flow with laid back, atmospheric post punk throughout the tracks that make up the band's sophomore LP 'II'. Sonic bursts of anthemic pop are accentuated and brought to life by front-woman Maja Milner's sharp and soaring delivery, cutting through layers of reverb to air out her dirty laundry. "Fuck you for fucking me when I was seventeen," Maja howls on the climactic track, "No Mercy", cursing the lover who shattered her youth. "You never loved me/ You wanted to own me/ Your time will come, my friend."
