Both Surgery Channel and the C.I.A’s first self titled record are ripe with straightforward conviction. However this most recent installment reveals a new side of their personality. Now the C.I.A. is communicating from an electrified, pulsating, metallic playpen that wants you to strut. “Impersonator” beckons a new groove, with call and response bass hooks that resemble a sequenced dance track and background vocals that invite a very steamy dynamic. High energy

“You Can Be Here” is for those who can move fast, while “Bubble” is for those who want to sway in sultry slow motion. Surgery channel shows punks a new way to move while remaining loyal to the traditions of catharsis and social commentary.

This record is an astute observation and blunt critique. Both inward and outward. It is an exploration into how harshly intimate that process can be. It was written in 2021 by Denée Segall, Ty Segall, and Emmett Kelly. It was recorded at Harmonizer Studios and mixed at Golden Beat by Mike Kriebel.
