Arriving August 31st is the debut album from the straight-up rock and roll band, The Brutalists. The band features members of L.A. Guns and the London Quireboys and their new self-titled release features a dozen tracks that mix together the band members early influences. The album begins with the early-sixties sounds of "I Don't Believe A Word," before working out the guitars on the post-punk appeal of "Wishing I Was Far Away." The Brutalists continue with the steady beats of "Form & Function," then add a ska vibe to "Meet Me Half Way." They hit the mainstream with the perfect mix of melody and energy with "Talk Of The Town" and also showcase some classic new wave energy with "Know Your Value" and the rockabilly blues of "Nutter." The Brutalists finish up their new album with a couple of CD-only bonus tracks, the pub rocker "Enough Of Me" and a return to the alternative, raw rock of "Drinking Alone."
