Gold Class – It’s You (2015)

On their debut album It’s You, Australia’s Gold Class plays like a brilliant post-punk compendium — the jagged yet chiming guitars of Jawbox and Fugazi, the lockstep rhythm section and dreary climes of Gang Of Four and Joy Division, a quavering bellow that bridges the gap between Morrissey and Glenn Danzig. You could throw dozens more references out and most of them would fit; these guys seem to have swallowed up an entire genre’s worth of history and ended up titans of the form.
