Well well well, we’ve just got a metric s**t-ton of concerts going on lately! It’s because I just can’t say no to all these bitchen’ shows. This one–The Horrors came on the scene a few years ago, but their latest album is a bit of a growth beyond their original sound which drew a little much on Joy Division & Nick Cave. Their latest album, Primary Colors, adds a shoegazey windtunnel of effects and pop-gloss hooks to their oeuvre, coalescing the wall-of-sound effect you can get off everything from SDRE (sorry, no tix for that kids) to the Silversun Pickups’ more esoteric tracks with…hmmm…Roxy Music or Psychedelic Furs. Yep. So, they’re good. Japanese Motors are locals whose “Single Fins & Safety Pins” single was a fixture on Indie shortly before its demise (no connection, I’m sure) and it was swell. No pun intended. Ha! Ha! Sorry.
Wanna go? Just post an excerpt from the most pompous record review you can find, in the comments (along with source URL or attribution). Because I know I suck at this music blogging crap and I’d like to be in good company. Nobody should ever get paid for writing music reviews*. Good thing I’m not.
Show info is here.
