A lot of 'isms' threaten to tear modern society apart at the seams: sexism, racism, extremism, radicalism, terrorism and more. In such an era of decay (moral, societal and otherwise), perhaps an apocalypse wouldnï¿½t be such a bad idea ï¿½ at least that's how Andre Mistier sees it. The charismatic lead singer and songwriter for the New York-based quartet ism describes his band's potent blend of rock and electronica as "music for the party at the end of the world." After all, not all "isms" are bad: Altruism, activism and heroism could help make the next world a better place, and there's no reason we can't start practicing them right now. Urgency, ism's sophomore album on STM Records, poses unflinching questions about the human condition in songs equally as bold in construction. Smart, melodic and hypnotic, the 12 tracks produced by Joe Blaney (The Clash, Tom Waits, Prince) on Urgency builds on the solid foundation of 2006's critically acclaimed Monkey Underneath.
