Stretch Your Bones
There is a song worthy of infinite repeat on Converge’s new record, All We Love We Leave Behind. That song is called “Coral Blue” and you can listen to it below:
Were I more capable of jealous rage, the quiet guitar-only section that begins at 2:29 of that song would lead to dire consequences. I am, however, calming down in my old-age and have been outfitted with an ability to admire from afar. The silver lining (and how rare are silver linings these days?) is that I will have an up-front and personal vantage from which to watch these elder statesmen. Our ragtag operation has been kindly given opening act duties for the show, and we will do our best to minimize disappointment. Should you care to bear witness, get there early and make sure to buy a ticket in advance at Vacation Vinyl or on TicketFly here.
In less yawning news, the digital dust has been cleared away from www.vitriolrecords.com, and a whole slew of new releases (including a pompy romp via hot sexaphonists Comadre) are due out. Bear witness and eat heartily.
We are still slow as molasses. Collectively, we are delivering your flora on whirls of heteronormative bar tabs. This is only a partial truth.
