You don’t often hear such a scalding roar from a singer the way you do from the Slit’s Dustin Liggit. We’re talking visceral, gut-punching aggression that hardcore punk singers made famous. And as deployed here on “Nowhere,” “Peroxide” and “Screw,” Liggit and his tight bandmates present a unique sort of confrontational theatre that alternates a screeching, high-energy guitar-bass-drums attack with ominously elongated lulls that promise to explode into violence at any moment. The spooky expectation of the band’s next twisted frenzy is somehow both fun and frightening to behold, guaranteed to keep a club audience on edge. Anti-commercial to a T, the Slit is a band that wants to fuck with ya.
