KASMs: SpayedSpayed (2009)

On their full-length debut Spayed, UK no wave act KASMs strike a midpoint between Bikini Kill’s anger and alienation and Le Tigre’s dance-centric revelry. Either way, frontwoman Rachel Mary Callaghan sounds a bit like Kathleen Hanna, and that’s awesome. Not that Kasms fit perfectly under the riot grrrl label. The band calls their style “shriekbeat,” which I’m guessing is supposed to be deathrock without the campy sci-fi/horror bent. The band retains that style’s sense of atmosphere, drone and echo, plus a passing reference to surf rock rhythms here and there.
