fuck off get free we pour light on everything
their current sound is more honed & bone-rattling than ever, melding hardcore, blues, garage & dark metal influences that have nothing to do with anything so quaint as ‘post-rock’.
for the first definitive document of the band's newfound sound & style as a quintet, menuck pens politically-charged lyrics as his massive spectrum-spanning electric guitar sound emerges as the spine around which two violins, bass & drums are deployed. features road-tested pummelling rock-outs ‘fuck off get free (for the island of montréal)’, ‘take away these early grave blues’ & ‘what we loved was not enough’ alongside the previously unheard lullabies/minuets ‘little ones run’ & ‘rains thru the roof at thee grande ballroom (for capital steez)’ & the album centrepiece ‘austerity blues’. feel-good music this is not; but neither can it reductively be tagged apocalyptic or world-weary. instead it rages with scorn & with hope, utterly passionate but pointedly unromantic.
