Pop. 1280 have been assaulting us with their evil-tinted no-wave noise punk since 2009, and despite their rigorous schedule of human sacrifices and necromancy, they’ve managed to churn out two full-lengths on the beloved Sacred Bones Records.  Their third LP isn’t far away, but in the meantime, they’re gracing us with a little 7″ teaser of what’s to come.

B-side Krankenschwester is a hard rock exorcism.  A mere 1:44, Chris Bug’s vocals make Marilyn Manson sound like Karen Carpenter, writhing and twisting like a demon-possessed Trent Reznor in the throes of a holy water shower.  Ivan Lip’s guitar work is every shade of bonkers, grinding up and down the fret with the bloodlust of a psychopathic prodigy.

Fans of The Birthday Party and early NIN should get a kick out of this one.  Embrace your dark side, you prudes.  It’s only $6.
