The Brooklyn What- Minor Problems

the deli


The first two songs on The Brooklyn What’s latest EP, Minor Problems, clock in at a little over two minutes each, but combined they carry the full force of the bands deeply imbedded “punk” DNA. And though this is The Brooklyn What’s starting point, the band has brought something fresh to this now almost staid genre. The closing track, “Too Much Worry,” is an eight-minute long, scuzzy manifesto, which hangs off Jamie Frey’s anxiety-laced howls until the band disassembles into an extraordinary pile of wailing guitar and drums. It’s something you don’t want to miss live. The EP is a heady mixture, not just raucous noise (though it is in good measure), but also prescient and self-effacing.
