Heads Up Display CD Review

Originally posted on January 24, 2011

Say hello to Brooklyn’s Heads Up Display, a tenebrous guitar rock band who just recently released a self-titled eight-song LP.  While the faster songs are tightly performed and have all the rousing energy of melancholy punk, HUD’s songwriting skills really shine through on the slower tracks, like in the spiraling, repeating patterns of “20/20 Hindsight.”  “Precious Cargo” is a beseeching, atmospheric song with a soaring guitar line, and the last track, called “Little Teeth,” is a mournful lullaby, Cimmerian in its simplicity.
