With the inauguration looming, now is the time for a Priests album. Born and bred in DC, Priests have released a smattering of cassettes, a 7″, and the excellent 2014 EP Bodies And Control And Money And Power, but Nothing Feels Natural is the band’s debut full-length. A lot of people have waited a long time for this album, and there are others who will hear it and recognize that this is exactly what they need right now, whether they knew it or not. Nothing Feels Natural leads with “Appropriate,” a song about rampant consumerism in which Katie Alice Greer sings, “It feels good to buy something you can’t afford,” her voice building until it reaches a loud, cathartic climax. What follows is a collection of punk songs that
feel vital right now. Stream Nothing Feels Natural below.
Nothing Feels Natural is out 1/27 via Sister Polygon.
