The Slits, Trapped Animal
The Slits, Trapped Animal(Narnack)
The Slits' first album in 25-plus years evokes their 1979 dub-punk classic, Cut. Despite some ill-advised updates (Auto-Tune, really?), songs like "Pay Rent" crackle with singer Ari Up's fierceness, underscoring why acts like Sonic Youth and Lily Allen cite the band as influences.
