Defeated is the sophomore release from Springfield, Missouri based duo Kudzu, aka Seth Goodwin and Mark Gillenwaters. The nine tracks are razor sharp post-punk hewn from the like of Gang of Four, Public Image Ltd. and FZB favorites, The KVB. Dark and noisy, with a ferocious sound that pushes one to the edge of the cliff, only to be pulled back at the last minute. This is music that compels attention, demands volume and impresses thoroughly. Just a damn fine record and a must have. Stream and buy Defeated at the link below.
