Death From Above 1979 – You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine
Death From Above 1979’s first full-length album is a masterclass in creating tight noise rock songs with solid melodies and massive riffs. This Canadian power duo (you know I love power duos, right?) hammers out a fat sound with bombastic drums and the best fuzzed-out bass the Great White North has to offer. Right out of the gate the album opener “Turn It Out” grabs your attention and tells you what it’s all about in no uncertain terms. From there you’re taken on a raucous journey that’s fun and slightly horney, making for a wild ride where someone will probably get hurt.
You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine is an album I’ve listened to countless times. If you wanna rock out, this is the album for you. There’s so much to love here and each time I hear it I find some fresh nuance to enjoy. It’s an incredibly solid album that doesn’t easily wear out the listener, despite it being on the noisier side of the rock spectrum. It’s an album bursting with energy and requires playback at MAXIMUM VOLUME. So pop it on your turntable and if your windows aren’t rattling, IT’S NOT LOUD ENOUGH.
