Have you guys heard this? I'm not sure what i think of Burn, Piano Island, Burn. It's scary, but maybe not in a good way... i dunno.
Ok, i've decided i like it. Am i a chump?

It sounds like a cross between The Locust and Hot Hot Heat.There is no need for that, DUD. (annoyed me like At the Drive In)

Yep, all three albums make me giddy, isn't that what this kinda music's about? lyrix are great too, strange but coherent in their own skewed logic, like modest mouse or les savy fav.

'Course, Racebannon are just as rad (the review of them in Careless Talk was inspired). Has anyone heard the new split with Thus Spake Zarathustra?

As I've said many time before on this site...I dig 'em. It's a tired old cliche but...good on album, GREAT live. They changed my mind about ATDI. Do people really rate Racebannon?

eighteen years pass...

wow there I am at 16 up there lol!

I feel like I never gave Head Wound City's A New Wave of Violence a fair shake at the time but it's really pretty good - Ross Robinson back on the boards for a 24-minute low stakes rock-em sock-em good time. Not quite Brothers-level - actually, it's not quite up to the standard of the Past Lives record either, but my impression is about 5 people heard that one - but still a lot of fun. "Closed Casket" is an anthem.

Also revisiting the Past Lives stuff has really helped reaffirm Mark Gajadhar as one of my favorite rock drummers, to my ears a totally distinctive style
