Pop Will Eat Itself This Is the Day...This Is the Hour...This Is This!
Usually fun isn't a concept apes ponder over when they're trying to balance the universe. But *this*? Pop Will Eat Itself's highly regarded 1989 record ends up being one of those things that does put possibly the goofiest smile on my face. At 51 minutes in total, This Is the Day... stomps about with a dorky swagger matched only by hedonism and a surprising quota of substance the more spins listeners give it. While all that goes on, this English band soundwise do an incredibly commendable job melding styles like disco, dance, industrial and hip hop. Hell, even strokes of post-punk happen to make appearances throughout
Pig Destroyer Head Cage
As big hogs within grind that helped popularize the subgenre, Virginia's own Pig Destroyer throughout the years have shocked, horrified and even titillated consumers in more ways than one. They definitely helped get me into the style, I can at least say that much. Even considering the very disappointing 'comeback' record dubbed Book Burner, PD's legacy wasn't badly tarnished. Fast forward to the current year, the (as of late) quintet have graced this sick world we live in with their sixth studio album - and it's this band's first release to feature a bassist! {gasp} Perish the thought! At 12 tracks in total, Head
Vein Errorzone
What Count Salty Balderdash from a certain outfit said about his main band's music sounding like it hurts applies to Vein much better. Coming straight outta Boston, this band's already made a name for themselves with their first album. Errorzone is 11 songs of unapologetic rawness that come off as being less dated and more modernized even taking into consideration the types of influences this band is pulling from - not to mention familiar, as well. Will Putney's production job doesn't really hinder the progress Vein make throughout, either, despite what gets thrown that man's way. The whole record oozes with charisma
Funkadelic Maggot Brain
Teyana Taylor K.T.S.E.
Up until the release of this record, much of my knowledge on Teyana Taylor came from the fact that she made a major appearance in the video for Kanye West's "Fade" opposite hubby Iman Shumpert. All's I have to say concerning that is, "Holy seismic shit. Richard of the Jungle is outta whack!" {ahem} I'm trash... Anyway, the final release delivered within the Wyoming Sessions, K.T.S.E. has a clear R&B air differentiating it from the hip hop-centric quality that permeated the past four efforts. One of executive producer and walking meme Yeezy's trademarks in the vocal sampling is still intact, though, as is to be expected. Outs
Between the Buried and Me Automata II
Unless the title didn't already give it away, Automata II is the second half of a greater whole that should've been released as such; meanwhile, spaghetti is a type of pasta and Billy Mays is still a ghost. In any case, this is about on par with the first batch of songs from a vocals, instrumental, and mixing/mastering perspective. Adding to that, however, II also has a bit more of an explorative edge to it: "Glide" for instance incorporates accordion playing and segues beautifully into the Diablo Swing Orchestra-sounding "Voice of Trespass," which is bound to go on to be one of my favorite BTBAM songs in re
