  • oh hi

This ain't your daddy's post-rock.  From the very first of four epic 13-16 minute songs you are catapulted into heavy riff-rock the likes of which are not even comparable to Mogwai's "Glasgow Mega-Snake"; it's more primal and blues-based than that.  It harkens back to 70s stoner rock; one can hear shades of early Sabbath, Blue Cheer, Hawkwind, and more modernly, Dead Meadow, Bardo Pond, Boris and Acid Mothers Temple.

Make no mistake, despite a decent amount of quiet time, this is a rock album from start to finish.  Even the subdued portions of the tracks are groove-laden and propelled by bass lines rather than piano.  This is utterly different from any other album this band has done before, and maybe this is the beer talking but I perceive it as the closest thing I've heard to a real revolution and breath of life into a genre/scene since OK Computer - though it sounds nothing like said album, it flies in the face of pretty much everything which is currently held as standard in the indie rock world in much the same way that OK Computer did.

It is perfectly understandable that it took them nearly three years to make this album because it is clearly a statement of purpose; a battle cry, a rallying point, and an absolutely uncompromising dedication to quality.  There is nothing sloppy here, lyrically or sonically.  None of the lazy bedroom nihilism that so dominates the very bands that Efrim's old band, GY!BE, kickstarted, such as Explosions in the Sky or Mono.  ASZM have always steadily been reaching in the direction of shaking you about the head and shoulders and yelling at you to, in the words of Carla Bozulich, "Do something, why don't you fucking DO SOMETHING?!" but this record takes that attitude to 11.

They named their third album, in part, "This is Our Punk Rock"... but only now are they really delivering on that declaration.  This music is angry, defiant, demanding to be heard.  Full of bombastic moments and sneering, spastic vocal delivery, it is a true battle cry.  "No heroes on my radio!" Erim chants on the title track, a brilliant evolution from his second-album maudlin declaration "Musicians are cowards".

Looks like he finally grew a pair of balls and wants you all to do the same.

Grabbing it as we speak. Well, as I type before, during and after your post, 'cause I saw it posted in the mediafire thread and decided to grab it from my torrent site of choice. Will let you know what I think after a thorough listen.

Wait, one of Efrim's bands mentioned with Hawkwind and Sabbath?  Or Dead Meadow?
I think I just deafened my internal monologue with a silent girlish squeal of pure glee.

I mean, that sounds like it rocks hard, man.

And its being released in March.
Well I guess I'll either have to find an internet connection that won't cut me out (off campus, namely) or wait, which I think I might be cool with.

I won't go that far.  I'll allow a little bit of lenience in case there's another record this year that blows my mind as much as this one.  Don't count on it happening, though.

I have been incredibly excited for their next album since I saw them perform in October, giving the best concert I have ever seen (with some other help).  I'm going to wait until tomorrow to give this a listen though; I feel I want to absorb this in its entirety, and I'm expecting a phone call soon.  I will let you all know how it goes.

Oh, and Zerodrone, if This Will Destroy You's new album was the best post-rock since You Are There, where does this fit in?

This album isn't post-rock, at all.  Honestly I wouldn't call any of the last three ASMZ albums post-rock; they've always been more grounded in folk/rock roots than the legacy of GY!BE that was prevalent on their first two albums.

This album is just plain rock music.  Very much so.

After struggling through various GYBE and ASMZ albums (and finding it to be extremely pretentious and boring) I'm a pleasantly surprised, this album is not shit. The riffs are decent and overall its quite an enjoyable listen. Definitely not album of the year, though.

I've been waiting ages for this. I haven't heard it yet but I'm unspeakably excited. I'm even more excited, however, to see them live in Philly (in a tiny church no less) come May. It's going to be a long wait but well worth it.

So, this album is incredible.  Best thing I've heard in ages.  I'm fairly sure this tops out anything I heard last year, and it's set the bar incredibly high for the year to come.  Efrim's vocals are perfect beside the music, which is in turns gorgeous, breathtaking, and shocking in how it approaches a pure rock method.  It's certainly a rock album, though taken with post-rock ideas in mind, it turns into something very different from what I've heard before.

They've announced an east-coast tour on their website, and I've very excited.

PREDICTION OF WHAT PITCHFORK WILL GIVE THIS ALBUM:

7.8

Calling it now.

Cause you know, post-rock is just soooooo five years ago.  It's all about Lil' Wayne now.

I'm gonna say either 6.8 or 9.3. Depends whether it's cool to like Efrim now or not.

I highly doubt it's cool to like Efrim anymore. Horses in the Sky got about a 7.3, I think.

And plus, this totally isn't artsy like Animal Collective.

Yeah, Horses in the Sky got robbed like a blind hooker.

Not as robbed as Maserati, though, who got like a 4.8 for one of the best albums of the last year.  It is obvious that post-rock is no longer cool.

When does this officially come out, for the record? Specific dates? General months? "Sometime this year"?

i once got chased from a train station after breaking in before being forced to huddle all night in a phone booth with 2 other people, this was after walking 5 (possibly only 2) miles from a gig i had attended. all because i wanted to see it through to the end- which was 3 in the morning. also im not actually a hobo.

true story.

also, i will most definately be acquiring this album by some means on my return home.

Zerodrone, I agree with you that pitchfork robbed Maserati with that 4.3.  I love that album.
