Palace Brothers, "You Will Miss Me When I Burn"

A repeat, but remains a lovely tune.

Fuck The Facts, "Shadows Collide"

Long running Canadian grindcore artists Fuck the Facts cranked out Desire Will Rot in 2015, producing an album that is interesting not just because of the stretches of blast fury, but thanks to the interludes in-between. I find grindcore more interesting when it provides those moments of contrast, it helps the crazy tempos stand out even more.

Devin the Dude, "Doobie Ashtray"

Devin the Dude, of course, is one of the exceptions to my pattern of not paying attention to lyrics, thanks to the rich variety of his subjects.

Tombs, "November Wolves"

I wonder what the most referenced animal is in rock music. Pretty good chance it's wolves, right? It's probably dogs, but wolves have to be close.

Kowloon Walled City, "50s Dad"

What makes Kowloon Walled City noise rock and not metal? If you hear them back-to-back with Tombs like this, it's not totally clear what the difference is. Some of it is the vocals, of course, the clean(-ish) vocals of noise rock are different than most modern metal styles. The drum rhythms are pretty different, that's one of the key differences. I guess those are the main things I'd highlight for this band. A lot of other noise rock bands are sparser in their guitar attack, which is a very different feel.

Ghost Funk Orchestra, "Queen Bee"

Take us home!
