Much has changed since 1977 but dissatisfaction with the status quo remains a nagging influence on music. Thirty-eight years since Buzzcocks’ anthem “Boredom,” London’s Sauna Youth sound just as alive and angry railing against “Monotony,” and declaring “I am nervous, I am anxious, I am nervous, I won’t stop” on “Modern Living.” Both are on the band’s second album, Distractions, which hits the ground running and tears through 14 songs in less than 30 minutes, only slowing down once. - [BrooklynVegan Favorite LPs of 2015]
