After a decade filled with bloated indie rockers and copycat screamo bands, Goes Cube vocalist David Obuchowski's larynx-shredding battle cries are refreshing. They're the perfect urgent focal point for the Brooklyn band's punishing mix of post-punk and metal — one that calls to mind the dissonant fury of D.C. bands such as Jawbox and Fugazi ("The Only Daughter") and the slow-burning, drop-tuned sludge of Helmet ("Clenching Jaws"). Goes Cube's music embodies a lot of the best things about the rebellious spirit and unpretentious mission of '90s post-rock, but these eclectic influences — and the band's undeniable energy — keep its sound relevant.
