WHAT THE F*CK IS IN THE MINNESOTA WATER THAT MAKES DISEMBODIED SOUND LIKE THAT?!?
Last night at NYC’s Mercury Lounge, after Earthless tore my face open (psychedelically speaking) and I spent the entire duration of Iron Age’s set talking shit at the bar trying to wingman one of the dudes in Priestess with a kinda lame chick, Disembodied stepped up to the plate and took an enormously heavy and dissonant dump all over the crowd. Musically speaking. In a good way.
Holy shit — I guess I’ve been living under a rock all these years because I had never heard of these guys who have been around for ages (and broke up for a while and recently reunited), but their set last night was well worth the wait, even if I didn’t know I was waiting for it.
Sure, I’m hardly the hardcore aficionado that Sexytime Suarez is (and that’s a-ok by me), but Disembodied’s abrasive brand of metallic sludge-core has me eager for more. Their whole set was pretty solid from start to finish, but the new stuff they played was truly original and amazing and offers a hell of a lot of anticipation for an upcoming album — ready whenever you are, dudes.
