I caught these guys by random chance right when Power Trip came out. I was in law school at the time, and when I went to class the next day I couldn’t turn my head whatsoever because the aggressive headbanging that Marissa and gents caused.
Screaming Females are the truth. They are the best live band in the world since the Mae Shi fell into the abyss.
Aaron, I love the additional track post!
When is that Horrendous album going to come out already? Between the link in the last Black Market and the other Stereogum premiere, that’s now my most anticipated upcoming release.
You are not. And Inherent Vice is a fun, fairly fast read.
Awesome. They pull off the old school hardcore sound so perfectly.
Not to mention the fact that it seems terribly reductive to simply call her a throat singer. Huun Huur Tu are throat singers, she sounds more like an electronic artist who uses throat singing as one texture in her arsenal.
The White Album
No more passing by $400 copies of one of my favorite albums!
Can’t wait to obsessively spin this all winter, just like Sun God.
Seriously, that rhythm guitar, blasting out one chord over and over, during the first solo on Let There Be Rock, is one of the most fantastic pieces of minimalism in music. All you need is an A pounding your skull into the concrete, over and over and over.
Let There Be Rock should be number one. I wouldn’t argue Powerage at two, but Let There Be Rock’s lesser songs are as good as Powerage’s lesser songs and there is very little in rock as good as Whole Lotta Rosie and the title track, Let There Be Rock. The rhythm guitar tracks on those songs are the basis for Shellac’s entire damn career.
