Bristolian crew Milo’s Plane fly in for a messy post-hardcore landing with their third album Individual Development Plan. The album races through twelve tracks in minimal time, chucking equal parts melodic songwriting and gnarly guitar thrashing at the listener. The album is released on vinyl by Gravy Train Recordings.

Noise rock as decrepit as our fucking internet, Milo’s Planes stop and start and riff and raff, until the only word you wanna use to describe them is “angular” but you know you shouldn’t because everyone’s sick of hearing it. The angular ‘Individual Development Plane’ strides forth as a semi-mathy but fully post-hxc showcase, heavy on pretty instrumentals and keen on two separate eras of Fugazi. The furious pouting of ‘Kill Taker’ and the experimental tinting of ‘the Argument’ spring to mind as these tracks race themselves, matching call-and-response shouting with striding chord sequences and momentary flicks of prettiness.
It’s a jittery record but it’s also the fullest of throttle, moving carelessly between quieter and more sinewy guitar moments to big dollops of distorted calamity. In a way, I have to really appreciate any noise rock band that’s closer to Fugazi than it is Shellac, since this record has a super hooking pace and, thanks to those bait ‘n’ switch vocal exchanges, a wonderfully collaborative feel -- it’s like playing co-op mode on a video game and screaming instructions back at one another. Only over good riffs and whinging feedback.
