Big Business – “Regulars” (Stereogum Premiere)

Seattle sludge juggernauts Big Business are set to release their fifth studio album, Command Your Weather, later this summer. The album is about strengthening your resolve against the sometimes seemingly insurmountable power and unpredictability of things beyond your control, and the duo’s thrashing, frenetic, rhythmic onslaughts suit that vision well. We’ve already heard “Father’s Day,” and it was a relentless four minutes. Their latest single is “Regulars,” which is sure to get your adrenaline pumping. Rhythmic guitar and grumbling bass drive the track as piercing wails push the energy up a notch and the guitar patterns switch for an engaging, less punishing listen that eases into affecting your mood and thoughts. Check it out.
