TWO WORDS: FUCKIN RIPPER. That’s the best way to describe Milk Music’s new LPÂ Cruise Your Illusion that came out last month via Fat Possum. Mixing the best elements of the Wipers, Husker Du, and maybe even a little Neil Young, Milk Music have really set the bar with this one with Nick Coxen’s shredding ability on full display throughout the entire recording. In an age when endless punk albums from many different subgenres are readily available for anyone who’s got a mind to track them down, it’s a pretty amazing feat to come up with something as original as “Cruise Your Illusion” while still staying in the parameters of what made this type of music relevant in the first place. Consider this a recommendation. Oh Yeah, Milk Music and Destruction Unit are playing the Stone Fox on June 5th. You should probably go. Stream a track from “Cruise Your Illusion” below.
