from pitchfork's sam hockley-smith:
Talk to anyone at any point about New York's "bygone days" and you'll undoubtedly get a riff on when the city used to be gritty and artistic—when it used to mean something. It's a tradition exactly as old as the city that birthed it, and it also means that New York is never not grimy and never not exciting. Yvette, the duo of Noah Kardos-Fein and Rick Daniel, are proof of that. They make music that feels physical and broken.
On "Attrition," from their album Process (out October 29 via God Mode), vocals aren't so much sung as they are chanted in disconcerting monotone, guitars grind and slash, and drums limp through their last moments on earth before they hit the trash heap. Kardos-Fein and Daniel go straight for the brain from all angles, breaking down the entire concept of what a song is supposed to be through arty, tangible noise. New York is still super smart and super gross, thank God.
