Your Daily Lick: Generalissimo

Western Medicine (Arbeit Macht Dinge)

A rock band that’s openly political? One might be forgiven for assuming that those went out of style. But Generalissimo might prove that assumption wrong. They’re a high-concept band, controlled and very explicit. Western Medicine isn’t a comfortable album to listen to, and it’s not meant to be. Yet it’s pretty great stuff if you like your rock cold, aggressive, and mildly unsettling.

At The Hemlock (3248 22nd St., San Francisco) on July 23. 9 p.m., $6
