Emmanuel Castillo who doesn't love a band committed to punk, poetry, and artistic purity? this is a more confidently patient release than Symmetry, but the riffs are no less monstrous and the textures deepen the space the songs inhabit. the lyrics have no fat to them, but still manage to be thought provoking, impressionistic, and emotional. always a pleasure :)
riyl: fugazi, parquet courts, refused, and anything in the realms of post punk, garage rock, posthardcore Favorite track: Food For Hornets.

Bite Bite Bite on the hand that feeds you. Bones Bones Bones, chew through all that tissue. Break Break Break bread upon that sinew. Bleed Bleed Bleed all the poison in you. I am food for the hornets. I am in the pelican's nest. I am food for the forest with a hole in my chest. Cut up the pattern.
Give me that desolation blues Give me that exclamation blues Give me that levitation blues Give me that devastation blues Get thee gone to the woods. I hear it clawing up the stairs I hear it knocking at the door In fact, it's all I ever hear. Can't hear nothing else anymore.
That tiger grace That feral hum That crescent-fanged chrysanthemum The wild rye The ivy crawls I paint my stripes, I clean my claws. I clean my claws in the blue of the moonlight I clean my claws in the bronze of the moonlight I clean my claws in the bliss of the moonlight I clean my claws in the blood of the moonlight
