We've always had a thing for Brooklyn duo Hunters - definitely one of the best new Noise Rock acts to emerge from Brooklyn in recent years. The band recently released two singles from their upcoming album, scheduled to drop on September 24, that - compared to the wild debut EP - showcase a sound less primal and slightly more controlled. Seizure (video here) offers the signature alternating, litany-like male/female vocals and a wall of distorted power chords between the bluesy and the dissonant which could have well figured in an early Soundgarden record. The latest single "She's So" (streaming below) features a clean guitar tone that's quite unusual for the duo. It triggers immediate nostalgia for some Sonic Youth track from "Daydream Nation," The Smashing Pumpkins' "1979" and maybe even the late Feelies (best NJ band ever by the way), building towards an explosive distorted chorus scarred by a crooked minor melody .
