Fucked Up – “Led By Hand” (Feat. J Mascis)

By Michael Nelson / April 29, 2014 - 10:36 am

We’ve already heard one track from Fucked Up’s forthcoming Glass Boys, and the Canadian epic-hardcore band just dropped another. “Led By Hand” kind of combines the soaring, atmospheric emo of Sunny Day Real Estate or Jawbox with a blues-y, slide-guitar chorus that reminds me of the Charlatans circa Telling Stories or something. Rhythmically and texturally, the track has a contemplative, languorous feel, belied by Damian Abraham’s fierce, frantic vocal delivery. J Mascis contributes backing vocals. Check it out.

Glass Boys is out 6/3 via Matador. Pre-order it here.
