White Hills’ most recent full-length, Stop Mute Defeat, came out last year on Thrill Jockey, and represented a change of pace for the duo, as they integrated more industrial elements into their hallucinatory blend. This lends a distinctively grimy feel that would fit right in with the Mudd Club scene of ’80s NYC – to some extent a natural consequence of the band working with Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Brian Eno, Afrika Bambaataa) yet also a fitting atmosphere for the record’s defiant and philosophically scathing lyrics.
