Drop the Lime We Never Sleep
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: Tigerbeat6
Luca Venezia's last joint, This Means Forever, could provoke epileptic seizures with its noisecore breakbeats, ADD-addled edits, and excessive ideas. This time, he has mellowed...slightly. Venezia tempers his beats down to steady, 4/4 dubstep clomps ("Hotsauce Grillz," "E Lock") that romp well. Rhythms kept simple never compromise any power or guile here. Venezia's menthol-coated hollering connects the NYC basement party circuit with hardcore punk, while his blue-eyed croons on the ballads will make many listeners proud to be single and dateless. Otherwise, this record's money shots are worth the tinnitus.
