headfirst to hell

grade have posted a new song on their myspace, and... i'm weirded out a bit. it sounds a bit more... epic than their older work? i'll admit my knowledge of grade ends with under the radar, so maybe this is indicative of their last cd, but... still. i'm not really feeling this.

also, the new mountain goats album is a major letdown, musically, and lyrically. tepid in all regards.

hopefully there will be no songs about blake losing his virginity this time around.

this is probably the best song i heard by thorns of life. it was stuck in my head my entire time in new york city, which i really should write about. i was there for nakatomi plaza's last two shows, which were incredible, and i've got a half-written article about it saved. i make no promises, but hopefully it'll be up soon. i mean to write in here more, things this month have just been oh so hectic.

Fugazi covers are neat!

also does a great cover of "blueprint". it's up at their myspace right now. i also had the great fortune of catching them this weds. at memories(the "hey buddy!" bar!), and holy shit, sir. kat's voice is enough to peel paint off walls, and the drummer(aaron) reminds me of an ent. a massive hulk of a human, destroying all that stands within his way. the whole band seemed to have some sort of psychic pain-feedback connection, and the music pushed and fought out of their frames. i left, staggered and in awe of their talent and ability to make such rending noise every night and still appear human, still smile when it was done.

their tourmates are no fucking slouches either. if you get a chance, catch the tail end of the beard destroyer tour. you will not regret it.
