This Moment in Black History 

It Takes a Nation (of Assholes to Hold Us Back) (Cold Sweat Records)

This Moment in Black History's quirky punk is sharpened into a lethal weapon on its scorching new, Steve Albini-produced disc -- which is way angrier and faster than 2004's lauded Midwesterncuttalistick. Heavy-handed lyrics about poverty, technology, and Republican treachery feature ferocious rhythms, demented synth squiggles, and smartass humor. You'll be hard-pressed to find a better punk record this year.
