Since 2007, the group has written and recorded four full-length albums of music ranging from vein-popping hardcore to electronic-tinged pop. The Milwaukee quartet’s third album Crown Of Nothing continues Direct Hit’s unique strain of “fuck you, get pumped” party punk they’ve been honing throughout their decade-long career. They pinball from style to style, but it never feels schizophrenic—more accurately, it feels like the best mix CD ever. There’s a reason why no two Direct Hit songs ever sound quite the same, too.
