Pitchfork Reviews This Heat’s Repeat/Metal

Earlier this year, Light in the Attic filled in some of the gaps in This Heat’s small, profoundly influential catalog with a series of live releases, Peel Sessions, and B-sides. The new material proves just how restless the band was, just how much they were rewriting the rules of what rock could sound like in the late ’70s. “Listening to them felt like catching little snapshots when the studio door swung open for a few tantalizing minutes,” Pitchfork writes. “To create music that will remain alive for four decades, it needs to be pliable and open to transformation.” Read about those records—and a concise history of the band here.
