Disguised As Birds – We Buy Gold – Album Review

Disguised As Birds – We Buy Gold – Album Review Disguised as Birds We Buy Gold disguisedasbirds.com Disguised as Birds Bandcamp I’ve often had this nightmare/dream where I am the man in black riding into town, could be that I’m the bad guy or maybe I’m just a down on his luck hero. A little washed out, and booze soaked, but a hero none the less. As I ride into this town out in the deserted slowly growing American West, thirst and heat are at their apex in my ravaged brain, a dirty, heavy smoke screen of a soundtrack rummages down into my brain. Kind of like a slow trickle of warm water from a hose that wasn’t quite shut off. It’s moments like this, reviewing music like this, that I know that these dreams are probably some sort of misplaced slip of the ego,my own brain trying to justify it’s own existence in my somewhat boring life. Then again, maybe I’m just really tired from working a weird time, and my brain hasn’t caught up with me yet. It’s hard to say. What I can say is that I really like this album from Disguised as Birds. I know we have played them on the show before, I remember the name. I just don’t remember it being like this. What is this? It’s a soundtrack to my imaginary cartoon land , still images moving along at a distorted pace. Black on white animation with slight movement and splashed colors. It’s fuzzy bits of hardcore packed rock imbedded with flickering light bulb streaks in an empty room in an abandoned house. Yeah, there is a dirty sweat soaked mattress on the floor and every now and again I get the faint outline of something at the window when the lights flicker, but I’m too deep into my own fantasy and the music to care about getting out of there. When I make the movie about my redemptive journey through the bombed out landscape of an post apocalyptic earth, the radiation fuzz burning into my head will have a joyful companion, the soundtrack played by Disguised as Birds, WE BUY GOLD. We like Disguised as Birds, we really liked WE BUY GOLD. This review was written by Brad Bugos. He can be reached at brad@fatrobotradio.com. Agree,Disagree, or confused?

Teen Agers I Hate it Music Review

Teen Agers I Hate It Anchorless Records Crisply played Pop Punk. Easy to digest and enjoy. Really hard to not enjoy or like this cleanly played music. Easily reminds one of Blink 182, which by my calculation makes me incredibly old when I say that would be a reference point for most people and I consider that a newer Pop Punk band. In movie references, Blink 182 would be the smart ass little brother (Chuck) from Can’t buy Me Love , while Teen Agers would would be the cool, not easily shaken ladies man little brother (Badger) from Better Off Dead. Don’t act like that doesn’t make perfect sense. Quickly played, quick crisp songs. Nothing to hate and no time for your hatred to build. Which is very goddamn smart, I wish more movie directors would follow this trend. Get in, do your thing, and get the hell out. Any movie worth it’s salt will complete it’s mission in 1 hour and 20 minutes. Any punk album worth it’s salt will complete it’s mission in 28 minutes. These guys here in Teen Agers are smart, their last song is their longest at three minutes and thirty five seconds. That’s exactly how it should be, last song should be the longest, leave a little something in the ashtray for you mom to find when she drives the car next time. Nice harmonies, some bands (and some bands do it well, but it’s over done a bit today) like to use that crowd chanting harmony in the background. This is the type of harmonies that work well for pop punk, nothing wrong with the former, but it’s a bit of well tread ground at this point. There is no way your not going to like this if you like Pop Punk, like I said it never goes too long, and the songs are catchy as hell. Very well played, nice voice, good harmonies, and quick punchy beats. Nothing wrong here, and it’s over in time for you to order up a burger and have a beer before you hit the head.

3 More Reasons to love Arliss Nancy

3 More Reasons to love Arliss Nancy Three Reasons You should love Arliss Nancy as much as we do by Brad Bugos We love Wild American Runners, the last release from Fort Collins, Colorado Band Arliss Nancy. It has a lot of winning qualities. We thought that we would pick three in hopes that your interest would be peaked and that you would at the very least, check out this really good band. We love this record and we love Arliss Nancy here in the offices of SLTM (the Podcast). So read below the three reasons why you should love them too, play the song below (the wonderful single “Coal”), then follow the link to their facebook and storenvy pages and get a copy of Wild American Runners. Reason One: The Road weary, seen too much, gravely wonderfullness that is the voices of Cory Call and Kyle Oppold. When you hear the words “I don’t think I can make it through another year alone”, goddam it you believe it. They sound so worn down by the road, wondering where the hell all their friends have gone and why aren’t the ones that they love home when they get there. These vocals draw you in, make you feel something, maybe something you just weren’t ready to face. Tired,alone and hurt. Reason Two : Those backing vocals. Harmonies, yes, but distant ghostly harmonies. Like the strange lonely hitchhiker you pick up at the side of the road in Tuscon at 3am. He’s starts singing along to the radio, but not loud enough for all to hear, he’s beat down, but there is a knowing calmness in that voice. This band does wonderful background and harmony voices, taking a torn page out of the Jayhawks playbook. Reason Three: That driving sadness that envelopes “Nathaniel”. The beautifully haunting “lost my way” repeated at the end of the song in harmony. Powerful. This song is part rocking bravado bridge burner “I’ll be better without you” ego flex and sad resigned, “I can’t do this without you” what do I do now give up. Bonus reason: the wonderful piano and organ playing of Chris Love. There is never a bad reason to add some piano or hammond to a song, it only enhances a tune, much in evidence by all the wonderful touches on Wild American Runners. One more thing: This band sounds like a world weary, worn down Scruffy The Cat. Don’t know who that is? Look it up on Trouser...
