Wall’s ‘Last Date’ Will Make You Want to Dance, Angrily
The term "post-punk" is overblown and, frankly, pretty useless as an identifier at this point. You have punk influences? Cool! Anything else besides that? Cool! Post-punk it is.
Brooklyn's Wall deserve that title, calling on influences that range from No Wave to Wire, Mission of Burma, Devo, early B-52's and the Fall in their output. Their latest self-titled Wharf Cat EP hit this summer, and includes the jerky, discordant and incredible track "Last Date," the subject of their latest video below. Check out the stark, black and white clip of a track produced by Austin Brown of Parquet Courts.
