Hot Nerds: From San Diego. On their new release on Three One G, Strategically Placed Bananas, Nathan Joyner and Alia Jyawook only partially embrace the half-serious dance punk anti-aesthetic that marked earlier efforts. Now a trio, Hot Nerds have built up their wheelhouse to include more brutal, tightly wound bursts of digital skronk made whole by raw, close-mic’d drums—courtesy of third Nerd Thomas O’Connell— but as always marked by Joyner’s decimated guitar tones and Jyawook’s wide-open fuzzy synths.
