***In a surprising turn of events, Pitchfork (7.8 rating) has some detailed thoughts about SLEAFORD MODS’ second full-length LP for Harbinger Sound. “Singer JASON WILLIAMSON speed-talks bile while ANDREW FEARN provides coarse backing tracks, which barely get beyond cheap plastic keyboard presets…. Divide and Exit is about as punk as punk gets in 2014. Williamson sounds charged, wired, determined to make one last go of things, simultaneously expressing his frustration at the helplessness of it all and finding his words taking him somewhere beyond his current predicament…. [Their] songs follow a simple formula, repeated 14 times on Divide and Exit. Fearn triggers his economical music, allowing it to repeat until close, while Williamson gets lost in a blizzard of words, sometimes to the point of tripping over himself…. Profanity, jokes, and commentary come thick and fast, with Williamson often sounding like he’s in an argument with himself…, a universal expression of exasperation…. Some of the acts regularly mentioned in the same breath as Sleaford Mods include the Streets, the Fall, and English punk-poet John Cooper Clarke. There are traces of those artists here, but only dim ones in the overall picture…. The crude nature of this music as a mode of overall expression, whether it’s in the unrelenting use of swearing or in Fearn’s cloddish rhythms, might be the most powerful tool this band has at its disposal…. The works are raw and technically poor, but the bitterness and hatred they express is overwhelming, illustrating how base feeling, when expressed with such belief, can overcome any window dressing put up around it.”
