A veritable clinic in how to sell out from your art-loft-rocking, blood-spewing, drumkit-smashing ways in the punkest way possible, LISTEN TO YOUR LEFT BRAIN (the third full-length from Providence, Rhode Island, supergroup Chinese Stars) combines the cavity-drilling energy of Arab on Radar with the streamlined ferocity of Six Finger Satellite to form an undeniable disco punk dance machine. The guitars still slice and dice, but the clattering hi-hats are designed to make you move rather than to freak out your younger siblings. Dumpster-diving noise freaks the nation over are put on notice: these legends have shown that there's avant life after 30.
