It is essentially impossible to keep up with new music these days. Back in the day, before you kids with your internets and your computers and your "walking around with a reasonably functional music studio on your phones" you still couldn't keep up with the constant flow young artists blowing out the speakers of the nation, but you could at least pretend otherwise. Today, even the pretense is gone.
The next couple of weeks I'll post some stuff that I've missed over the last couple of years, but which shouldn't be missed. We'll start with a group called Braided Veins. My buddy +P J Kane
led off his end of year comp with these guys this year, with a song called To Whomever Finds This Document
off of their 2013 Future/Forever
album. It's the best cold open of his EOY in years, if I may be so bold, and I was immediately seeking out the album and more by the band.
Somewhere between old school DC hardcore - think Fugazi - and the angular math of Emergency & I
era Dismemberment Plan. But more on the Fugazi end of that spectrum. He's a 16 minute live session for your Sunday morning. Everyone needs a little hardcore punk on their Sunday mornings coming down.
