This side project of Chris Spencer — leader of noise-rock pioneers Unsane — has a slightly more stoner-rock edge than his main act. But those who crave Unsane's relative anarchy will still find plenty of caustic jams to revel in on Dissent, Spencer’s newest work under the Cutthroats 9 moniker in over a decade. Moments of outright bluesy-ness throughout the record via slide guitar and harmonica can be deceiving, as lurking underneath that veneer are multiple layers of beautiful ugliness.
