New Model Army “Today is the Day”

(Attack Attack) Who doesn’t have respect for NMA?  Being idealistic and fearless since the days of the Falkland War, explosively dynamic in their post punk, and as catchy as a pub Oi band, it’s easy to join their regiment. Although this opens as if it’s going to be a concept album about the financial crisis, it’s actually a lot more diverse than that, as NMA apply their dire, edge of your seat approach to songs that seem to be about the personal, the redemptive, and the soulful as well as the social and political. And you gotta love making a punk song about mambo.
