Totem Terrors - Unkind

We've been following Cardiff duo Totem Terrors for a while in a couple of forms and this might be the most alert they've sounded, if you discount the nonchalance of the vocals. The sinuous, constant riff against the insistent chanting and sudden breakdown where a lesser band might have placed a chorus, recalling a more legible Pere Ubu circa Dub Housing, brings a new vitality to the whole wiry (and Wire-y) post-punk 'thing'.
