“Cops in the North/cops in the South/cop gonna take his gun and put it in your mouth,” rasps charismatic vocalist Graham Collins over a nimble ska groove on the opening track of Controversial NonCommercial, the fifth LP by Chapel Hill punk trio SiBANNÄC. The two-and-a-half-minute “You Can’t Go Out at Night” zips through five distinct parts, ending with shouts of “Hands up/Don’t shoot.” As a song about hating cops, it’s already quintessential SiBANNÄC. But it also demonstrates SiBANNÄC’s uncommon songwriting, arranging, and instrumental skills. The band easily handles transitions between punk and ska. —Danny Hooley
