Alaric(US) - S/T (2011)


I don't know about you, 'scopers, but the Great Postpunk Revival left me a bit cold. I felt like William Reid in that interview on Belgian TV: "What's so fucking great about Joy Division?" So why, you might reasonably ask, am I uploading a postpunk album?

These guys. These guys get it. There's the standard chorussed-up guitar and cardboard box drums, but there's also a lot of Amebix in there. There's a lot of proper goth in there. A lot of Killing Joke in there; a lot of anger in there.

Alaric do not sound American - they sound like they're from Leeds, it's the early 80's, the world is falling to bits and all they have to help them in their protest is a knackered amp and four chords. I fucking love this. You will too.

Yes Sir, I will
