Geoff Rickly's experimental punk supergroup United Nations are currently streaming their sophomore effort, The Next Four Years, via Pitchfork's Advance streaming service.

The album is the first new release for the band since the extremely limited Illegal UN cassettes released last year, and first official release since 2010's Never Mind
the Bombings, Here's Your Six Figures
.

It's not popular enough really as it hasn't had that much attention until the past couple of weeks. Heck I missed the first single and yet I ended up being the one to report the last single and the stream cos nobody else noticed it.

For those who don't know (which seems to be a large chunk of this thread), Daryl and Ben haven't been with United Nations in years. Their rhythm section is the rhythm section from Pianos Become the Teeth.

This album is pretty good. I would like to hear a higher quality stream though. I hope that it's not just the mastering. Am I the only one hearing a really obvious Deafheaven influence here?

I think it just evidences how much Deafheaven's sound really lines up with skramz; if every band who put scorched screams and melodic guitar lines over fast beats and cymbal crashing is influenced by Deafheaven then you can bet Kerry McCoy is a time traveler.

4740 Comments


I don't think they're influenced by skramz as much as they just coincidentally sound like skramz. When you think about what they're doing with black metal, there are obvious correlations in the instrumentation (vocals, guitars, drums), but it's characteristically still black metal.
