New York foursome Pop. 1280 are not shy about showing their handñ they take their name from a Jim Thompson crime novel about a killer cop, and theyíve given their first full-length album the self-explanatory title of The Horror. Pop. 1280, with two records on Sacred Bones Records, swallow in the same pool of pigfuck sloppy seconds as East Coast contemporaries Pissed Jeans and the Men, but where those bands respectively soften their blows (somewhat) with wry observations about domesticity and knowing classic-rock references, Pop. 1280 offer no such salve.
