Release date: July 26, 2019
This is a great album from these Noise titans. Most of the tracks are in the same vein but “18 the Number” steps out of the usual vocal styling and almost reminds me of the Pixies if they were a noise band. Track 3 is “Sooey Pig”, probably my favorite track as it has a slower heavy vibe that sounds like he’s calling a lover. The whole album has a general feel of an angry fever dream. The stand out track to me is the final on the album, “Nobodies” and it hits me how Steel Pole Bathtubs' “Scars from Falling Down” hit me in the 90’s. All in all, this is a solid album from this band. -Kaya Chaos
