[NEW GRUNGE] I saw New York\'s Hunters at South By Southwest in March, playing the relatively empty courtyard of a fancy-pants bar. Pink-haired singer Isabel Almeida splayed herself across the monitors in between furiously pogoing and mugging for photos, while guitarist Derek Watson churned out torrents of gloriously distorted noise. It reminded me a bit of early Yeah Yeah Yeahs, and I found it fun. On its self-titled, full-length debut, though, the band falls in with much older references—namely, Sonic Youth and Nirvana—and colors of a much grayer hue than Almeida\'s fluorescent locks. It quickly calcifies into an inert mold of grungy alt-rock riffs barely distinguishable from one another, and the boundless energy of their live show is buried underneath. Which is to say: See them here, buy a shirt, and leave it at that.
