Spotify Wormhole Session #2: Rolo Tomassi

Huge fan of the "Gateway" band for this listening session. Song commentary was captured in real time; please excuse typos, grammatical errors, and general awkwardness.
1Rolo Tomassi
Time Will Die And Love Will Bury It

Aftermath - Love everything about this track; vocals definitely shine here. The contrast between the vocals and the harsh instrumentation during the chores really make this track for me.

Where Myth Becomes Memory

Almost Always - The “intro” to this track blows me away each time I hear it; everything just feels balanced and necessary for lack of a better word. By the 2:05 mark, the quality of the music shifts dramatically but still feels very much a part of the soundscape that the band is looking to create. Lyrically, there is a feeling of loss and confusion. Beautiful track; don’t know how they top this album.

Drip - Intro runs a bit long but isn’t overly obnoxious. The riff at 1:30 is very effective at “hopefully” establishing a home for the transitions that will most likely follow; mellow bridge, clean vocals are great here. More proggy elements are nice additions through the next few musical transitions; home base reestablished. Solid outro melodic, but enough heaviness to hammer the point home.
3Cutting Pink With Knives

Airz - Hardcore, Emo, Electro ? Runtime 1:24

Laser Hannon - Love the energy of this track; feels like 80s retrocore with emo vocals (Heart Tapped)
4Curl Up and Die
Unfortunately We're Not Robots

You be cuter if I shot you in the face - Why do bands think it’s okay to play a chord progression, guitar only, for a minute in the intro of the song ? Then use that same chord progression for the verse? Okay, I must admit, after hearing the progression for over three minutes, it grew on me. Bridge seems to be a variation on the main chord progression, maybe ? Big outro beginning at 6:45ish. (Heart Tapped)
5As the Sun Sets

Hay is for Horses - Metallic Hardcore, odd time riffing, dissonant chords, tasteful chuggs, and 55 second runtime.

The album is just under 15 minutes with a 12 track listings (Heart Tapped)
6Oktober Skyline
That's How Tripods Work

If I were in The Chinese Army

Everyday is a holiday - High screams are a bit too shrill for me.

I am_. Hear me philosophize - feels like doom or sludge metal; pick up around 1:25. More post metal style bridge, breakdown at 2:35 (Heart Tapped). Clapping in an outro ?
7Tower of Rome
All Is Lost...All Is Lost...All Is Yet To Be Found

Girls that smoke gross me out to the max - Grind ? Grindcore? Crust? 58 second runtime.
8Ed Gein
It's A Shame That A Family Can Be Torn Apart By...

This band can up a lot, but I avoided them because I thought that naming your band after a serial killer was gauche.

You suck at life…and I don’t mean the board game - (Heart Tapped)

The Marlboro Man is a Douchebag - (Heart Tapped) Focus chaos for 1:49. Perfect end to the listening session.
