The unconventional band Pop. 1280 made a recent appearance at Chop Suey. I only found out about the band this summer, and immediately loved their strange and rather unsettling music. That disconcerting feeling was in their live set as well. Mostly there was a sense of anger. And how anger can fill a room. Their sound, twisting and isolating, brought forth songs such as “The Control Freak,” “Do the Anglerfish,” and “Beg Like a Human” – the thing about dogs, is that they don’t know what they’re doing/I want you to beg, like a human!. I think this New York band is just so great, from their synth influence to whatever the heck else makes them tick. Thank you Pop. 1280, for something different and brutal.
