Straight from Melbourne, Australia comes post-punk’s newest soldiers, Love of Diagrams. I don’t really know where I was going with that soldiers bit, but Commando is on cable right now. Nonetheless, they’ve made the jump to the big time from Unstable Ape Records for their debut album The Target Is You (2003) to Matador Records for their spectacular sophomore album Mosaic, released on April 10. It’s abrasive stuff, but if you’re into Sonic Youth (who they’ve opened for) then this is probaby for you. I think the reason I like it so much is because everytime I listen to it it reminds me more and more of The Sound’s Jeopardy (1980) and anything that comes close to touching that has got to be good.
