Providence, RI's What Now were fronted by future Small Factory ringmaster David Auchenbach. Given that Rhode Island is so tiny, it's no surprise that the handful of bands I know of who've come out of the Ocean State contain relating members, but I digress. What Now didn't emanate an iota of the Factory's abundant twee factor, but the punky verve of "Noisemaker" and "Anthem" are nonetheless warm and melodic, in a not dissimilar vein to Husker Du. The starker "All My Life" is colored from a dronier sonic palette, while "The End" opts for a relatively contemplative tone.
