Ah, at long last, <a href=”https://www.facebook.com/VVTSD”>DSTVV is back. Fronted by Joel Cusumano, DSTVV has created smartass “industrial grungegaze” for the past three years. They even released the first (as far as I can tell) song to name-drop The Bay Bridged. (Unfortunately, another scenester name-dropped in the song didn’t care for their reference, Cusumano took it off the internet on his own. Oh, well.) Today, we’re pleased to share you DSTVV’s latest, Target Demographic, out on cassette via Death Records.
While Target Demographic features the relentless hard-hitting drum machine and grunge guitar riffs you’ve come to love from DSTVV, Target Demographic also includes some lovely drum breaks and what is likely the only industrial cover for Technnotronic’s “Pump up the Jam“. It’s great fun. Cusumano, who also performs with Cocktails, Talkies, and Stalls, tells me that this is likely the final DSTVV album, although he adds “i reserve the right to pull a jay-z tho”. Either way, enjoy it while you can – Target Demographic is below and a cassette release show is scheduled for Friday night at Amnesia.
