[SPIRIT OF ’79] Something Fierce is an undeniably awful band name that evokes a dust-caked fiasco rotting in a dollar bin somewhere hot. Get past it, please, because the awfulness of the name is inversely proportional to the transcendent perfection of Something Fierce’s fidgety punk-rock anthems. This year’s Don’t Be So Cruel, easily my favorite album of 2011 so far, deserves a bit of the same breath you’d give to praising the Jam’s Setting Sons and the Clash’s London Calling, two obvious influences on this young Houston trio’s sound, but Something Fierce is too vital to be dismissed as a throwback act. Just consider it beautiful, essential music and go. CHRIS STAMM
