I wrote a bunch about the Florida band FLOOR when we premiered “War Party,” the first single from their upcoming album, Oblation, but here’s the condensed version: FLOOR were the band Steve Brooks formed (and disbanded) before forming Torche; they released one album, in 2002, which has gone on to attain semi-classic status — it is, perhaps, the seminal document of the sludge-pop genre. Anyway, FLOOR have re-formed and will release a new album later this year (the aforementioned Oblation), and if you like Torche, you’ll like this, too. They just dropped a new Oblation track, “Sister Sophia,” and it’s another ass-kicker. Check it.
Oblation is out 4/25 via Season Of Mist; pre-order here.
