The Dark Knight Rises…. Corgi Edition
openyoureyesmusic asked: Hey! I noticed we like the same music, and it'd mean a lot if you checked us out! We're a touring rock band from Chicago, and will be releasing a new album soon with guest vocals by Craig Mabbitt (Escape the Fate)! We're almost always touring, so please head to our Facebook (link is on our Tumblr, it won't let me include it here!) and LIKE us to stay updated! Can't wait to see you over there!
Sir, I do not believe we are seeing eye to eye on this music thing.
Do you like Godspeed You! Black Emperor?
Their early work was a little apocalyptic for my tastes, but when
Slow Riot For New Zerø Kanada came out in ‘99, I think they really came into their own, eschaterically and thematically. The whole EP has an intense and tenacious sound, and a new sheen of modern romanticism that really gives the songs a big boost. Efrim Menuck’s been compared to Win Butler, but I think Efrim has a much more pragmatic, wise outlook on the world.
In 2000, Godspeed released this: Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven, their most accomplished album. I think their undisputed masterpiece is Static, a song so sobering, most people probably don’t listen to the samples. But they should, because it’s not just about the imminent mortality of man as a society and as an individual, but it’s also an important statement about fighting against the industrialized life-cycle of the Western world!
