As half of Yellow Swans, Pete Swanson helped forge a craggy discography of fearsomely articulated, mind-expanding noise. Now solo, Swanson has retained his discordant tendencies, but he’s added a more robust rhythmic dimension to his tracks. That tactical shift blossoms with frightening intensity on his latest release, Punk Authority. Swanson combines filthily distorted, grinding synth tones with splenetic beats that push the meter well into the red. Dance the apocalypse, brothers and sisters.
