Great music can come from unlikely places. The repressive regime in Iran has provided a breeding ground for the emergence of great post-punk bands. The Yellow Dogs were #3 on my top 10 bands for the first half of 2011 and you can be sure that Hypernova will be on my year end best bands list. Exit Strategy is the debut EP from Hypernova and it is great on several levels. First, it was recorded live, but has a production value well beyond that of most live records. This brings me to the second point, great musicianship. You simply have to listen to Exit Strategy to undertstand. Finally, great songs and lead vocals. This is a band and record that work on every level and are marked for wider recognition. Stream and download Exit Strategy at the link below.
