ENTRE VOUS, BUTTS OF THE PORCELAIN THRONES!
I’m just gonna give you a little drive-by preview/review of a couple upcoming joints on two very different ends of the spectrum. Starting off with the one I expect to see on every instagram, snapchat, and all other forms of social media post a big break-up. As we all do when we need help crawling out of emotional bedlam, we grab our crew of close-knit individuals and start working on feeling our own value again. Commonly exemplified though the gender-neutral phrase, “I don’t need no bitch”. Here are a bunch of ladies who really, really, really, ain’t need no judgemental male double-talk.
THE SORORITY – SRTY
Flailing bars around like Missy Elliot on fire, the timing and essence of the album very much remind me of Deep Purple’s first release, which was a college project where they wrote the album “Machine Head”. Fucking Machine Head. I hope that I’m wrong in saying that these ladies are in the most passionate stage of their lives, and in the right time to be so. I sincerely hope they do the opposite of what most college bands do, and continue with the absolutely amazing momentum they have here.
AMORPHIS – THE BEE
BACK TO THE METAL. I have never BEEn a huge Amorphis fan, but this one BUZZED into my life and STUNG the musical HIVE in my brain. Pleasant dichotomy between how smooth the clean sections are and how booming the gutteral sections transition. The makings of an incredibly visual concept-album, which seems like a grand undertaking in this day and age, as most individuals barely make it through a full song before hitting the “next” button, so I wish the Amorphis boys godspeed.
YA NEVER GON’ CATCH ME, SEE Y’ALL NEXT YEAR! (Monday).
