Denizenz, a gloriously noisy post-pop-punk band that has been gracing stages around town for the past couple years, has not established a strong internet presence. We're left with a few blurry videos, some old fuzzy recordings, and a trail of show dates reaching back into the previous decade, but from these artifacts one can get a sense of the band's essence: hysterical, howling vocals, garage-rock-style snarls of guitar, skittery keys, and steady drumbeats. One rad track titled "Ideas" commences with a shriek before the vocalist descends into a clever, scathing diatribe, stating, "I've got a light bulb like Thomas Edison," then demanding, "Give me ideas/I want your ideas!" I've got one for them, about getting their shit together online, but something tells me these guys may not give a fuck. MARANDA BISH
