Sometimes a band will crop up out of nowhere and kick you so hard in the dick that the hairs fly out of your skin. Most Cloths at the ready, this is Jean Foutre.
It’s not often that you will listen to the debut album from a band and immediately get excited about how they are going to progress with their next release. Every Stranger Looks Like You did that for me, and boy are they delivering.
There’s not really much to give this introduction, other than the fact the name drew me in, followed by the album art. Also I have a fucking mental rabbit running around me and climbing my legs right now. Cute guy.
I’d say a good third of bands that I cover are compared to the likes of Nirvana or The Melvins within their little PR seller. Although most do somewhat earn the comparison, none quite to the deserved extent as Forever In Debt do.
I have always liked split releases. Although it sometimes feels a bit weird buying half a record for a band you love and getting another half for one you have never cared for, you get instances where you can be weaned onto a new band via the select track(s). This PABST/AUTISTI split could easily be that for fans of either band.
You know how people like to pick on everything about St Anger, the Metallica album that has somehow apparently gotten worse over time? I remember the one slamming point was the sound of the snare, something that personally didn’t bother me. And apparently, This Is Wreckage more than likely don’t either.
Enamel Animal; I like the name alone. 8/10 job done.
Straight up, this album took all of 1 minute to wow me. That is an impressive feat; that said, it also leaves itself with over 40 minutes of high expectations to live up to.
