Comment: it is probably one of the most favourite releases by The Bordellos for me where the soaring dynamics through raw sounds and vivid dodges comes to the surface. It is like The Fall meets Faust in a way. Beaming galvanised guitars and subtle electronics are mingled with sassy vocals and singing manner. Furthermore, having been very characteristic to The Bordellos throughout the discography they used to add fragmented Americana influences to the mix. But not only – the whole Free Download Generation as a track chimes like a piss out Americana pickup on clumsy folk and awkward rockabilly. The most uncanny track is Disco Pants with the offbeat frequency in the rhythmic measure being accompanied by acidic electronics and gravity-free singing as if produced by the unforgettable Arthur Russell. I don`t even know is it either a dance track or an anti-dance statement. In a word, give a heck to it because it will transport you somewhere else from this nowadays overproduced and overloaded pop rock to some very roots of rock and punk music with its own idiosyncratic touch.
