Let's get this out of the way: Coriky is the new band that features Ian MacKaye and Joe Lally of Fugazi and Amy Farina. From that alone, how could you possibly not listen? Luckily, Coriky lives up to their members' pedigrees. "Clean Kill" starts off similarly to MacKaye and Farina's other project, The Evens. It's quieter than Fugazi or Minor Threat, keeps some of the multi-vocalist harmonies of The Evens (obviously), but isn't quite as quirky or folky as The Evens. And then the song pauses, and just when you think it's over it explodes. Yeah. "Clean Kill" is what we all need right now.
You can listen to "Clean Kill" below. Coriky's self-titled debut album will be out March 27 on Dischord Records. You can pre-order a copy via Bandcamp. For more on Coriky, check out Dischord's website.
