Pitchfork thinks Violence is Golden is totally lame: “Everything about “Joy”, the first song on their first album, reeks of being 10 years past its best-before date: Sarah Daly lays on the ultra-vixen shtick extra thick (“My love leaves a permanent stain/ I’m in love with my digital toy,” she informs us with a curled-lip purr) while her band plods away in a PVC-sleek synth-grunge grind that could’ve easily scored them the opening slot on an Elastica/Garbage bill, provided Republika or Sleeper weren’t available.”

That sounded good to me so I downloaded the album off eMusic and . . . it’s pretty good. The band is Scanners; MySpace here.
