Performer Notes
  • Though the hard-driving duo Death From Above 1979 hails from Canada, that didn't stop them from being snapped up by cutting-edge NYC label Vice Records. In fact, the pair's sound has much in common with their post-punk-inspired New York contemporaries, but they differ from the pack in a major way. DFA (not to be confused with the NY electroclash label of the same initials) employs an instrumental palette consisting almost entirely of bass and drums. Jesse F. Keeler plays mind-bogglingly overdriven bass lines (and the occasional synth), providing the frenetic riffs over which Sebastien Grainger howls excitedly and bashes his drums with savage abandon. The resultant sound is a melting pot of Motorhead-like metal, stoner rock, and Pop Group/Wire-indebted post-punk, with a touch of the Boredoms' noise-is-God aesthetic thrown in for good measure. The unrelenting YOU'RE A WOMAN is a slap in the face to those who think early-2000s indie rock translates into an endless stream of Gang of Four copycats.
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.105) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Their debut channels sledgehammer power into 11 tunes with a filthy, deeply groovy core."

Alternative Press (p.113) - "Call DFA79 death-punk; call them disco-metal; call them your new favorite band." - 5 out of 5

CMJ (p.4) - "There's danger amidst their not-so-secretly Canadian handclaps, tambourine and cowbell drenched tracks..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.64) - Ranked #47 in Mojo's "The 50 Best Albums Of 2005" - "[They are] adept at plaiting stomach-busting noise around a mighty groove."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.101) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[With] bowel-rattling rhythmic rock that's as viscerally exciting as it is grubby."
