Savannah, Georgia sludge-metal warriors Kylesa started out as a slobbering two-drummer beast of a band, and they’re still that. But on their last two albums, they’ve been injecting their ferocious roar with more and more gloriously anthemic ’90s alt-rock melody. Ultraviolet, their latest, is a triumph in every way imaginable, and it’s one of the year’s best rock LPs thus far. We’ve posted the early songs “Unspoken,” “Quicksand,” “Vulture’s Landing,” and “We’re Taking This,” and now you can (and should) stream the entire monstrous thing at Pitchfork.
Ultraviolet is out 5/28 via Season Of Mist.
